Judy Murray says Andy has return goal

5th March 2019, 16:44 by Gareth Freeman

Former world number one Andy Murray "will put his heart and soul" into his attempt to return to tennis, according to his mother Judy.

The three-time Grand Slam winner underwent hip surfacing surgery at the end of January and it remains unclear if he will ever be able to return to competitive action.

Murray, 31, stated the main goal of his most recent operation was to improve his quality of life but refused to rule out competing again.

Judy Murray, who has given several updates in recent months about her son's condition, says it is still too early to know whether or not a return to action is realistic but she knows the two-time Olympic champion will give his all to get back to the top.

"He is doing pretty well," she told Sky Sports. "It is not that long since he had the operation and time will tell.

"Nobody knows how he is going to recover in the longer term. He is in a good place mentally and we just keep our fingers crossed.

"But I tell you, if anybody can do it he can because he will put his heart and soul into it like he does with everything."
