Andy Murray's body needed 48 hours to recover after comeback match

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray was all sore after his comeback match he played against Australian Nick Kyrgios in the Fever-Tree Championships first round at the Queen's Club last week. The Scot, who was playing his first match since Wimbledon, was eventually edged out by the Australian 2-6 7-6 (4) 7-5 after more than two hours and a half of action.

The former world No. 1 underwent a hip surgery at the beginning of January and admitted that the troublesome part of his body was also sore. "I wasn't feeling great in the 24 hours after the match against Nick. I had soreness in the hip and stiffness in the lower back and the glutes," Murray said in his BBC Column.

"On the grass, the ball stays lower so you're bending down to a lot of balls, meaning soreness and stiffness would normally be the case after the first match on the surface, even if I'd been playing regularly. "But it was multiplied because it was my first match in such a long time." Murray revealed his shoulder was also sore and that his body needed 48 hours to recover from the match.

Meanwhile, Murray saw off fellow star Stan Wawrinka in the Nature Valley International first round but then lost to rising star Kyle Edmund in the Eastbourne last-16. Also read: Thanasi Kokkinakis: It would've been fun to play against Bernard Tomic at RG
