Andy Murray’s mother, Judy, has admitted she is hopeful her son will return to professional tennis following successful hip surgery.

The three-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one underwent surgery back in January following the Australian Open after an ongoing hip problem.

The 31-year-old appears to be on the mend however after the Scot posted a video on social media earlier in the week on the practice court.

Murray is hoping to return in time for Wimbledon, with action at the All England Club set to begin on July 1.

And talking to The Scotsman, Judy gave a ‘hopeful’ update regarding her son’s comeback.

Hopefully he does come back and play again but you never know.

He’s doing OK, but it’s early days and we’ll just have to see how things turn out.

Murray, who has won two Olympic gold medals along with 45 singles titles during a glittering career, has admitted that he has been pain-free since surgery.

And despite revealing he is under no pressure to return to the top level, Murray will surely be desperate to return to Wimbledon, a tournament he has won twice before.
