'Life-changing' operation rekindles returning Andy Murray's love of tennis

Nick Kyrgios People should not put pressure on Andy Murray

"I didn't expect to be in this position", he said.

"It has been brilliant, completely life-changing for me from where I was".

"It's just good to see him back but I don't think I want to carry him for Wimbledon dubs - I think he can find someone else to do that for him", Kyrgios said with a smile.

"I'll enjoy competing, have enjoyed practising and hitting tennis balls and doing all the things I couldn't do a few months ago".

A long slog but the enforced and prolonged absence from the high performance level could be a long-term benefit to Murray who, says Henman, should now be able to postpone retirement and ultimately bow out on his own terms, when he feels the time is right, not simply when it seems necessary. Yes, he admits, he is in different place, pain-free for the first time in years, and without the burden of expectations not just of tennis fans but of himself. Just to see him back healthy and happy on the court is all that matters. Then that will give me some information about where I'm at and maybe things I need to improve or whatever. "I've made good progress in training and on the practice court, and this is the next step for me as I try to return to the tour", he added.

"There were a number of times over the last 18 months where I did want to stop". I would say it would be unlikely (to win the title), because I've not played many matches. It's where I won my first ATP match, my first title in Britain and on grass, and it's been my most successful tournament overall.

"I'd nearly pay to watch that match".

"Yeah, now it's just nice - I like playing tennis".

"I don't know if my body... if I happen to go deep at Wimbledon, it's too tough to play doubles as well". I'm exactly the same. "I didn't want to play any more", he admitted.

"Yeah, it would be nice to be winning Wimbledon and Major tournaments, but hardly anyone gets the opportunity to do that and there are still loads of players that love and enjoy the sport without being able to win the biggest competitions. I would love to see something different this year and hopefully it will be me", Tsitsipas said on Sunday. "It's not a big deal". He will be playing in Fever-Tree Championship in the doubles, an idea he didn't like before. "He spoke about the possibility of playing here with Andy, and of course my answer was yes". "He's a great player". Yeah, I hope it's going to be a good week for us. "You remember the things that are actually important or the reasons for why you actually start doing something or why you play a certain sport, do a certain job", Murray said. "And Feli was, like, Are you insane?" No problem. Like, we have a combined ranking of, I don't know, whatever it is, 53, we are in for sure.

"Yeah, I lose so many points from the French Open because we played well previous year there with Marc (Lopez), with my partner, we played semis, so we lost a lot of points".

Kevin Anderson is back on the court after rehabbing from an elbow injury. "There are a lot of positives to take". "I'd nearly pay to watch that match". A few weeks ago, the former World No. 1 saw some kids hitting balls next to him, and how much fun they were having just getting to play the sport.
