Scotland’s Andy Murray forced to postpone comeback due to ongoing pelvic injury

Andy Murray has announced that his tennis career comeback will have to wait until mid-February at the earliest due to an ongoing pelvic injury, forcing him to miss tournaments in Montpellier and Rotterdam.

The Scot was already forced to miss this month’s Australian Open competition despite managing to play in Davis Cup ties in November 2019.

“I don’t want to rush anything or put a timeline on my recovery,” the two-time Wimbledon champion said of his decision. “I’m going to listen to my body and step back on the court to compete when the time is right.”

Murray has been undergoing continuous rehabilitation following surgery to resurface his hip at the beginning of last year. It was due to that same hip surgery that the Scot missed a whole year of tennis before his surgery.

Murray only returned to singles games in August 2019 having taken the men’s doubles title at Queen’s Club with Feliciano Lopez in June.

The Scot – who was awarded the comeback player of the year win at the 2019 ATP awards – has expressed that the “bone-bruising” he picked up is currently plaguing him for longer than expected, and so, is not aiding any form of speedy recovery.

Murray has stated he will continue to work hard with his team, and in the gym, to ensure he is able to come back to the sport in good form.
