Murray confident of returning to the top


Andy Murray is confident he can compete at the top of the sport again as he continues his comeback in the doubles at Wimbledon.

Ahead of the Australian Open in January, Murray hinted that this year's Wimbledon could be his last tournament as he continued to struggle with a persistent hip injury, but he is finally pain-free after undergoing hip-resurfacing surgery.

Focusing on doubles as he builds up his fitness, the 32-year-old was victorious at Queen's and will be hoping to lift the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon alongside Serena Williams.

But he is already looking to the future and returning to the ATP tour.

 “If someone can give me a reason why I shouldn’t be able to compete again then I would listen to it, but so far I haven’t really been given one," Murray said when asked if he could return to the top of the sport.

“If, physically, I can get back to a good level my tennis is still fine. I’m sure that, tennis-wise, I will be able to keep up with guys.”

“I don’t feel that the game has moved on and I won’t be able to get back. A lot of the same guys are still there.”
