Tim Henman advise Andy Murray not to rush comeback Henman advise Andy Murray not to rush comeback

Former British Tennis player Tim Henman has advised Andy Murray to stay patient with his hip injury and not to rush a comeback. 

Murray hasn’t played the professional tennis for almost a year — since last year’s Wimbledon.

The Scot initially tried to avoid the surgery on the long-term issue but after failing to recover in time for January’s Australian Open, went under the knife in Melbourne.

Earlier, he was included in French Open’s entry list and was expected to play this week’s ATP Challenger Tour event in Loughborough but did not request a wildcard and now he is targeting to return to competitive action during the upcoming grass-court season.

Double Olympic Champion is now expected to get on the professional circuit since Wimbledon in s-Hertogenbosch. The s-Hertogenbosch event is due to be kicked off on 11 June.

Andy Murray comeback

However, Tim Henman has urged Andy to make sure his body is 100% fit, before he can really care about competing as the standard would be really high with the best players in the world on the field.

“His mentality goes without saying but unfortunately this is an area where it doesn’t matter what he thinks mentally, it’s all about his body,” Henman said. “He’s got to make sure his body and his hip is 100 percent, or as close as he can get to that, before he can really worry about competing. “We know that the standard at the top level is so high, unless you are in peak physical condition it’s going to be very difficult to compete with the best players in the world.”

According to recent rumors, Andy might miss more of the grass-court season including Wimbledon but Judy Murray recently underlined that his son still targets to get back during the grass season.

Addition to that, Libema Open organisers are also confident about Andy’s participation after talking to his team and are not afraid of any rumors.
