The former world number 1 Andy Murray has been missing from the Men’s game for the most of last 3 years. The Brit superstar suffered a hip injury in late 2017 and had a consequent surgery. The road back to the tour has however not been so smooth for the 2016 Wimbledon champion. We look back at his remarkable career and then chances to be a regular feature of the tour again. Murray has been among the truly great tennis players of this era registering some remarkable wins. 

Great Performances And Injury Issues

Andy Murray became the world number 1 first time in his career in the year 2016. He was the only player other than the Big 3 to achieve this great feat. Murray defeated some great tennis players that year regularly including his great Serb rival Novak Djokovic. He has also defended his 2012 Olympic Gold Medal by winning it again in the 2016 Rio Olympics. The British star had finally emerged from his shadows to become one of the great tennis players. 

The year 2017 however saw a lot of dip in Andy Murray’s performance. He exited in early rounds of the Australian Open even after being the top seed in Melbourne. The saga of early exits in important tournaments continued and Murray would also fail to defend his Wimbledon title. He finally announced a break from the game to undergo the much delayed hip surgery. However, the British legend has been dealing with a lot of post-surgery issues that are hampering his comeback to the tour.

 Andy Murray: Road To Recovery   

 After his 2017 hip surgery, Andy Murray has faced many issues and challenges to regain his previous playing level. Yet like other great tennis players, he continues to push his way back into the singles tour. The Brit star made his first comeback effort in the 2018 Grass court season but faced movement limitations and other minor injury issues.  In the 2019 Australian Open Andy Murray decided to retire from the tour. Many great tennis players paid him rich tributes.

The 3 times Grand Slam champion then played a great 1st round match against Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain but lost in 5 sets. Being one of the great tennis players of this era, his hunger for the game was far from over. He decided to go for another hip surgery to ensure any chances of coming back. Murray did make efforts to play again and even was a part of the British team in the 2019 Davis Cup. He is however being very cautious and taking one step at a time. 

Andy Murray now looks to play more regularly in singles once the ATP tour resumes after the Corona-virus related suspension.  Being one of the great tennis players for his country and the game, we wish the former Wimbledon champion gets back to his previous level in terms of skills and consistency. He has done his country and team proud many times from winning 2 Olympics Gold Medals to being the only British male players in many decades to conquer Wimbledon. Murray has been a true legend of the sport.
