Andy will give 'heart and soul' into comeback: Judy Murray

Andy Murray's mother Judy recently said that the Scot will "put his heart and soul" into making a comeback to professional tennis.

The three-time Grand Slam winner underwent potential career-ending hip resurfacing surgery in January 2019.

Prior to that, he had expressed his desire to participate in Wimbledon 2019, but added that the Australian Open 2019 could be his final tournament.

What had Andy Murray claimed earlier?

"I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months. I want to get to Wimbledon and stop but I'm not certain I can do that," Murray had said after his first round exit in the Australian Open.

Tearful Andy Murray was struggling for a long time

Murray delivered a remarkable performance in a five-set defeat against Roberto Bautista in the first round of the Australian Open 2019.

The former world number one was in tears during his emotional pre-tournament news conference.

Murray had said, "I'm not feeling good, I've been struggling for a long time. I've been in a lot of pain for about 20 months."

Murray had earlier undergone a surgery on his right hip last year.

Since then, he managed to play just 14 matches after making a return in June.

He had to withdraw from the China Open in September.

Murray played just three matches in 2019.

The Scot will hope to follow in the footsteps of Bob Bryan, who made a return following a similar surgery.

Murray has the record of appearing in all four Grand Slam finals in his career alongside Federer and Ivan Lendl.

He has the distinguished record of winning the Olympic singles gold medal and the US Open in the same calendar year.

He won his two Olympic gold medals on two different surfaces (grass and hard).

In 2016, he reached three Grand Slam finals.
