Judy Murray has shared a positive update on her son Andy Murray's recovery. The former world No. 1 underwent a successful hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January. During a heartbreaking press conference at Melbourne Park before the Australian Open, Murray broke in tears while explaining how his hip wasn't where he hoped it would be after the first surgery and long recovery.
The Scot said the Australian Open might be his last tournament but remained hopeful that he could say goodbye at Wimbledon in July. Despite fighting hard, Murray bowed out of the Australian Open in the first round as world No.
23 Roberto Bautista Agut claimed a 6-4 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-7 (4) 6-2 win. Murray was happy and satisfied with the way he fought against Bautista Agut and said he would be at peace if that was his last ever match. Murray isn't expected to play at Wimbledon this year but he hasn't ruled a potential comeback after undergoing successful second hip surgery.
"He (Andy) is fine. He was just hitting the ball against a wall. It is only weeks since he had surgery but he is not in any pain. It is very early days and we just need to wait and see what happens but he is without pain and he is walking normally which is good to see," mum Judy revealed, per The Scotsman.
Murray remains in contact regularly with American doubles specialist Bob Bryan, who underwent the same hip surgery last year. Bryan has been encouraging Murray not to give up as the American has returned to playing tennis this year.
