Henman: "I just hope Andy Murray can get back to playing on the main tour"

Andy Murray is far from the tennis courts from the Davis Cup finals staged in Madrid in November last year. After the hypothesis of a new surgery to resolve a bone calcification, the three-time Slam champion has resumed striking and hopes to return to the court when the Coronavirus emergency is over.

His brother Jamie remains hopeful they can one day play together on the green grass at Wimbledon. “We don’t know what will happen with Andy’s hip but we hope he’s going to get back fit and healthy and get back on to the court," he told the Scotsman.

"I haven’t seen him for a while – this break will give us the chance to catch up – but I know he’s been practising which is good news. We’ve always said we wanted to play Wimbledon one time together before we stop and hopefully we’ll get that chance”.

Even Tim Henman spoke about Murray: “I love the fact that he still wants to be out there trying to get back,” the former British No 1 told the Glasgow Times. "He’s really in unchartered territory because normally when you have an injury, there are lots of others who have had that same injury but that’s not the case for Andy.

There’s lots of people who have had new hips but not at the age of 32 and not those who want to get back to playing world-class tennis. So it’s amazing how well he’s done already. Seeing him on the practice court and seeing how much he’s enjoying himself, I think it’s incredibly impressive, especially considering what he’s achieved in the game already. And so I just hope he can get back to playing on the main tour."
