Andy Murray 'optimistic' he can play this year, says mother Judy

SHOWS: MIDDLESBROUGH, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (APRIL 24, 2019) (BBC - NO USE UK) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ANDY MURRAY'S MOTHER, JUDY MURRAY, SAYING: "He is almost three months past his surgery so he was told not to do any impact work which basically means running around the court and hitting the ball for three months.

But he has been back hitting a ball against the wall, he's been hitting a little bit from a static position so, you know, it is still early days and need to wait and see how he does but I think he is cautiously optimistic, you know, about getting back onto the match court, you know, perhaps at some point over the summer."

ANDY MURRAY'S INSTAGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT OF HIS HIP SURGERY STORY: Andy Murray is "cautiously optimistic" he will be able to play tennis again this season after successfully undergoing hip surgery, his mother Judy has said.

The three-times Grand Slam champion said at this year's Australian Open that constant pain in his hip had brought him to the verge of quitting tennis but revealed last month that he was pain free after the procedure in January.

Murray posted an Instagram video of himself on an outdoor court earlier this month, describing the footage of him hitting a tennis ball for the first time since the surgery as "a start".

He followed that up with a video of himself playing a round of golf that reinforced the message that he was on the mend.

"It's still early days so we will have to wait and see what happens.

He is cautiously optimistic about getting back on the match court perhaps at some point over the summer," Judy was quoted as saying by British media.

"He was told not to do impact work, which basically means running around the garden hitting a ball, for three months but he's been hitting against a wall from a static position." Murray hoped to make his comeback at Wimbledon and said in March that he would consider playing doubles because it would put less stress on his hip.

The 31-year-old twice Wimbledon champion has compared his situation to that of American doubles player Bob Bryan, who returned to competitive tennis 5-1/2 months after undergoing a similar procedure.
