Andy Murray has been told he can decide at the last minute if he wants to return to action at this summer’s Wimbledon.
The 31-year-old former British and world number one underwent hip surgery earlier this year after his performances had suffered due to the constant pain.
Murray admitted at this year’s Australian Open that he was seriously considering retirement but he was reluctant to make that call before going under the knife.
He recently posted a short video on social media which showed him hitting the ball against a wall and the three-time Grand Slam champion has now hinted a return could be on the cards.

A return at Wimbledon, where he has won two titles, is still highly unlikely unless he decides to play in the men’s or mixed doubles.
However, Murray has been told by chief executive Richard Lewis that a wildcard could be held for him until just before the draw on June 28. “If Andy came forward with a strong case we would work with him.
At this stage it’s entirely up to Andy, it’s in his gift as to what he decides to do,” said Lewis.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
