Murray pleased with injury progress

12th June 2019, 13:15 by Tom Hill

Andy Murray claims he could return to singles action before the end of 2019 as he tries to regain his fitness after hip surgery.

The former world number one is set to play doubles at London's Fever Tree Championships next week and the Scot claims he is in good shape ahead of his return to action.

Murray has not played since his emotional appearance at the Australian Open in January, but he is now ready to partner Spain's Feliciano Lopez at Queen's Club.

The US Open is the final Grand Slam of the season and while Murray admits it may come too soon, he believes a singles return is likely this year.

He told the Daily Mail: "I hope at some stage this year I would be able to get back to playing singles again. When that is, I'm not really interested in putting a time limit on it because I'm quite happy just now, so I don't need to play singles after Wimbledon or at the US Open.

"If I can that would be brilliant, but I don't think that's going to be the case, I think it's going to take a bit longer.

"It's baby steps just now. I'm feeling good, pretty much pain free and enjoying kind of just training, practising, improving all the time. I don't think when Wimbledon finishes that I will just step onto the singles court the following week and everything's good."
