Former World No 1 Grand Slam Champion Andy Murray is set to make his return at the Grand slam stage and has confirmed his participation in the Australian Open scheduled to be held in January 2020.
Murray underwent a second procedure on his hip in January this year after admitting in a tearful news conference at the Australian Open that he had been playing in considerable pain for some time and was considering retirement. Since then he has been making some good progress in recovering.
He reached the quarter-finals of the China Open in Beijing last week, losing to Dominic Thiem, and won his opening match at the ongoing Shanghai Masters on Monday.
Murray - who played a series of high-profile doubles tournaments after teaming up with Serena Williams in the mixed event at Wimbledon - then opted to skip the US Open in NY.
After a gap of exactly a year, Murray is set to return to singles in a Grand Slam.
