No elite player has ever returned to professional tennis game with a metal hip replacement, but Andy Murray is working hard and believing he could be the first.
His mother, Judy Murray also a tennis coach and one of his biggest fan believe he can make a comeback, as she retweeted Andy Murray practice video with the caption “where there’s is a wall, there’s a way”.
The former world number 1 who has been away from tennis since January, and after undergoing a second hip resurfacing surgery within a year, Andy Murray has shared footage on social media of himself hitting a tennis ball against a wall as he continues to work on his fitness.
Andy Murray said last month that he will only compete at Wimbledon this year if he is confident he can avoid embarrassing himself or hurting himself further.
It remains unclear whether the 31-year-old will return to the game competitively after he had surgery to have a metal hip socket fitted.
