Andy Murray is set to take his first steps back on a tennis court as soon as next week following back surgery.
The Wimbledon champion reported on Thursday morning that he is pleased with his progress following the operation on a disc in his lower spine in late September.
‘It’s gone well so far,' said Murray, at the launch of his new Head racket at West London’s Queen’s Club, where he won the title back in June.
‘I’m hoping to maybe hit a couple of balls next week and see how it is and I will try to progress from there.
‘There’s still quite a way to go and I don’t want to come back until I’m 100 per cent. I’ve been working hard and doing the right things with the rehab.’
Murray has entered the Dream Cup exhibition tournament in Barbados taking place in late November.
‘I would love to play a match or two there, we will have a better idea in ten days to two weeks’, he said.
