In the run-up to Wimbledon last year, Andy Murray suffered from his hip. Gradually, the edition of this year is also in jeopardy. His comeback is mainly foreseen for the tournament of Rosmalen, but the chances are that he sees the entire grass season pass through his nose.
Andy Murray had to cancel an announced comeback twice. Beginning at the US Open and then in January at the Australian Open. Afterwards, he went under the knife in Melbourne. Last Tuesday, the list was announced with players for Queen’s. The name of Murray is there, but all signs indicate that he is not ready to play in time.
This week there was no trace of Murray on training. Besides, his coach Jamie Delgado posted a photo on Twitter after he hit a ball with Tim Henman and not with Andy Murray.
The Rosmalen and Queen’s tournaments both seem to be compromised. If Murray can not make his re-entry soon, even Wimbledon will become a problem. That would be a shame because Murray fulfilled the hope of all Britons twice by winning Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016.
