Bob Bryan: 'Andy Murray can come back to play tennis'

Bob Bryan is probably the player Andy Murray spoke to the most in the recent times, as the American underwent hip surgery in September and he is back to the competition. Bryan praised his surgeon for the work done with him.

Murray is likely to have surgery from. ‘I just represent an option for him', Bob explained. 'That guy does everything you can possibly do as far as training and rehab. He’s talked to a million specialists. But I’m really the only guy to be playing on tour with a metal hip.

It’s called a hip resurfacing with an artificial implant. It’s a full replacement. Has the bar that goes all the way down the femur. This is a little more a sports, high-performance, smaller metal implant. I was on crutches a couple days later.

I was at the US Open three weeks after surgery with a cane. At the end of September, I had the surgery on August 2nd, I was just hitting some light balls.' Bob, who opened his Australian Open campaign with Mike in style defeating, did not deny that Murray could play on the ATP Tour again.

‘I personally don’t underestimate Andy Murray. You look at the great workers in history: Lendl, Courier, Roddick. This guy is maybe even a step up from those guys. I think he’s going to have the surgery. He’s probably going to just rehab it as best he can.

If he sees there’s a chance to come back, you know… I personally think he can do it. But, you know, there’s no evidence that it’s possible in tennis. I mean, so much wear and tear. But I think he could do it.’ ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
