Andy Murray’s hip injury

The long awaited return of Andy Murray following hip surgery remains uncertain after he pulled out of the Libema Open grass-court tournament in Holland, the latest of a long line of withdrawals. Having not played competitively since losing in the quarter finals at Wimbledon last year, during which time he has dropped out of the world’s top 150, he has been struggling to regain his form and fitness, but is still hoping to play at Queen’s Club as part of his build-up to Wimbledon 2018. Such is the concern over his recuperation that his mother, Judy, has taken to wearing a shirt with the words, “He’s fine” emblazoned across it. However, his latest withdrawal suggests this is not necessarily yet the case, and, whilst the likes of Edmund and Norrie have made great strides during Murray’s lengthy absence, it is surely the beknighted double Wimbledon and Olympic champion that the British public would love to see winning the 2018 Wimbledon men’s singles final.
