Murray Coming Back 'Soon'
Former World No. 1 Andy Murray says he'll be back “Soon.. Very soon” and that rehab on his hip is going “Really well.. Much better than I expected so far”.
The five-time Australian Open finalist was recently suffering from jet lag after his aborted trip Down Under and hosted a Twitter Q&A, #AskAndy.
The Scot received a fair number of non-tennis questions, such as “Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?” To which the witty Brit Murray responded, “I don't know.. But if I crash land in a jungle will I be able to eat my own shoe?”
But Murray also entertained some tennis questions, including a couple about his right hip. He underwent surgery on 8 January in Melbourne after planning on competing in the 2018 Australian Open.
The 30-year-old has not played a match since 12 July at 2017 Wimbledon, where he lost to Sam Querrey of the U.S. in the quarter-finals. To be fair, Murray did say, “Soon. Very soon,” with a wink.

He watches what he eats while enduring rehab in London. Murray said he enjoys “pancakes and Nutella for breakfast but I'm good the rest of the day.” He's also spending a lot more time with his mum, Judy Murray, which seems to be going OK.

And Murray made a very important announcement about Rafael Nadal's fashion.
