Tennis Podcast: Positive signs for Andy Murray on singles return


After Andy Murray played his first singles match since undergoing hip resurfacing surgery in January, The Tennis Podcast team convened to discuss how he looked, his long-term prospects, and his decision not to play singles at the US Open.

Murray lost 6-4, 6-4 to Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati, but according to David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport) and Matt Roberts, there were plenty of positive signs, particularly when you consider that, six months ago, he couldn't even tie his shoelaces without experiencing pain.

What caused Murray's tentative and nervy start to the match? And how much did his game improve throughout the contest?

Looking ahead, what does Murray's schedule look like now? Will he have to adjust his style of play to compensate for his metal hip? And why is he targeting Olympic doubles gold with his brother Jamie next year?

The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year, and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments, in association with The Telegraph.
