Andy Murray’s mum Judy hints he could make amazing Wimbledon comeback

JUDY MURRAY has dropped a hint that son Andy could make an amazing comeback for Wimbledon.

Only last month, the three-time Grand Slam winner claimed his chances of appearing at SW19 were “less than 50 per cent”.

Murray, 31, even admitted he may never play again after his hip surgery.

The Scot has been out since the Australian Open in January, where he broke down in tears before the tournament and said he planned to retire after Wimbledon because of the pain.

But his mother has offered renewed hope that the two-time Wimbledon champ could play on the hallowed grass this July.

She said: “He is cautiously optimistic about getting back on to court sometime this summer.

“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.

“It is still early days so we will have to wait and see.”

Murray was last seen on court in an epic five-set, first-round defeat to Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in Melbourne.

Having spoken of retirement before the tournament, Murray softened his stance after the loss — telling the crowd he hoped to see them again next year.

After hip resurfacing surgery in January, Murray revealed: “I have a metal hip. Feeling a bit battered and bruised — though hopefully that will be the end of my pain.”

After Judy’s remarks, British tennis fans will be giddy at the prospect of a dream summer comeback.

Murray could ease his way back on the doubles court at Queen’s in mid-June. And if all goes well, he would be tempted to give Wimbledon a shot.
