Andy Murray says he is finally pain-free after long-term hip problems and admits he could return to action in the future. The former 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.
“I have been hitting the ball from a stationary position but I haven’t been doing any movement,” Murray told BBC at Sunday’s London Marathon. “I don’t feel any pressure to get playing again but if my body will allow, I will try. “The hip is really good and there is no pain any more. “I’m just a bit weak from the incision in the operation. I’m pain-free, happy and enjoying my life.”
