The former world no. 4 Jonas Bjorkman commented on Andy Murray's attempt to play singles again. The Swede said: "Absolutely, Andy can get back to the top ten levels. There is no doubt, with the calibre of player he is, if he is healthy, I have no doubt that he is going to be back to challenge the top five.
Once a champion you are always a champion. He has had a problem with his hip for a long time and that has been throwing him off a bit, but there is no doubt that he can come back to that level and maybe play even better. Without pain, without the stress of the pain and not knowing what to do, he’s probably going to have a smile on his face just going out and being freer, when you don’t play with the pain any more.
It was a smart move to start slowly playing Doubles. It’s a huge difference singles to doubles. It is not so much about fitness, it is more about where to stand and the court coverage. Hopefully, he will find the right time to play singles.
He won’t risk it, for sure. Andy is so professional in everything he has done in his career and with such a great team behind him who have been with him for so many years, its no doubt that they will make the right decision when the time is right”.
