‘There’s no reason why I can’t be back to what I was before,’ insists Andy Murray

Andy Murray says that, his speed aside, there is ‘no reason’ why he can’t get his game back into the shape it was before the injury. 

Murray has endured a nightmare three-and-a-half years with a hip injury that eventually needed to be solved with resurfacing surgery.

The initial signs after the surgery were positive, with him winning the European Open, but he has had a tough 2020 in which he has looked a shadow of his former self.

However, he says he has seen more than enough to be optimistic and he now has a clearer idea of what is necessary.

“The only thing that I maybe won’t get to the same level in is the speed,” Murray explained.

“There’s no reason why [with] everything else I can’t get back to what it was before. I think next year I’m going to be alright.

“I just need to make sure that everything’s kind of in place, and I think with my age and also with the metal hip, I can’t really afford to have any chinks, or be slightly heavier than what I should be, or have weaknesses in my body that I maybe could have got away with when I was younger.

“I’ve seen enough in the limited amount I have played in the last year. I was beating a top-10 player in Cincinnati, and then obviously at the end of last year I was still winning against guys like Stan [Wawrinka, in the European Open final].”
