Recent reports suggest two time Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray, may not make his comeback from hip Surgery at the ATP challenger event in Loughborough this Month.
The 30 year old who hasn’t played competitively since Wimbledon last year has believed to have had a set back in his recovery from the Hip surgery he under went back in earlier January, following his failed comeback in the Australian Open.
The former World number one had publicly, had the beginning of the grass court season as his comeback target, with the first event he had publicly committed to being held in Rosmalen, Netherlands, between June 11th -17th. However, it is believed he was ahead of schedule and Privately had hopes of playing in the Loughborough event on May 21st, until this latest setback occurred.
Murry’s treatment and rehabilitation has been a rather closely guarded secret, with little known in relation to were his recover is at except the odd sighting at the All England club in Wimbledon and the Mouratogolou Academy in Nice amongst a few others.
Although his close rival Rafel Nadal, did admit to speaking to his long-time friend back in April telling reporters:
“I know how tough and frustrating it is when you work every day and you don't see the light of how to improve. But then one day trying things, trying treatments, one day things are going better, no?
“If he is healthy, he will be back in a position to fight for the most important things. But as with everybody, you need to be healthy. Without health, you can play but is almost impossible to play at the level that Andy wants to play.”
Murray’s successor to the British number one spot Kyle Edmund eased into the second round of the Madrid open yesterday beating Russian Daniil Medevdev 6-4, 6-0 to set up a tie with Novak Djokovic today.
Should Edmund beat the former world number one he is expected to be break into the worlds top 20 when the next official ranking are released.
Unfortunately, Joanna Konta slumped to yet another early exit losing her qualifier in straight sets to Bernarda Pera who is currently 64 places below the British number one.
