Andy Murray has admitted he still feels pain in his hip but he is feeling better than 12 months ago ahead of the Australian Open.
Murray is currently preparing for next week’s Brisbane International and continues to build up his fitness having had hip surgery back in January 2018.

The former world number one has taken some time away from the court to be ready for the 2019 campaign but the five-time Australian Open runner-up has revealed he is still not 100 percent.
“I need to play matches and see how it feels,” said the five-times Australian Open runner-up. “Last year when I came here it was tough, I was struggling quite a lot but it feels better than then.”
Murray added: “When I am able to play three, four, five matches in a row I can take it from there. “I would just like to get through the tournaments and feel like I am able to compete and not be restricted by my hip.”
Murray managed to win the Brisbane title in 2012 and 2013, and now the Scot enters the competition with a world ranking of 256.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
