Finally, we can see Andy Murray again on a tennis court, on the lawns of the Queen's Club, in London. The Scots had worried fans, media, insiders and tennis lovers when, last January, he announced the probable end of his career, after the great match lost against Roberto Bautista at the Australian Open.
Andy, on the other hand, surprised everyone, with a second surgery on his hip to finally solve the problem that caused him pain and suffering from mid-2017 onwards. Well, the 32-year-old can take back his tennis destiny, and now, after six months, he will take again the court, but for the moment only in men's doubles.
In fact, at Queen's, he was in the main draw with Feliciano Lopez, to the delight of fans, who saw their hero again in action. He also won the Queen's title along Lopez in a historical day for him and his partner, and he found a player for the men's doubles at Wimbledon: Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
Playing doubles was a wise choice; rather than playing in the men's singles, the Scots will accumulate important minutes in the legs, and also the taste of playing again in the official matches. By doing this he can regain physical shape, the rhythm of the match, minutes in the legs, confidence and athletic and mental strength.
All this in order to see him, perhaps from the US Open (or more likely from the Fall on the indoor hard-courts), again competitive in men's singles. It will be likely that the second part of the season will serve him to regain health and fitness, because, on balance, his true second tennis life will start from the Australian Open 2020, when Murray, if he has overcome problems and pain in the hip, he can go in Melbourne to take home the title he chased for a long time.
Meanwhile, step-by-step, Andy is ready to put aside all the bad luck that haunted him in the last two years, and start again from London, a city that gave him a lot of satisfaction, in one of the most important moments of his amazing career, which can start again from the UK capital.
