Andy Murray set up recovery from hip injury on Saturday morning as he was put through his paces.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played competitively since injuring his hip at Wimbledon in the summer but is doing everything he can to return to competition as soon as possible.
Murray, who is seeking to return at the Australian Open in January next year, was pictured training at the O2 Arena in London on the weekend.
The Brit was snapped practicing his serve, forehand, and backhand as well as enjoying a quick catch up with Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who is currently preparing for the London ATP finals.
Murray returned to the court earlier this week to take part in a charity match against Roger Federer at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena.
Murray, came back to the court not long ago to partake at the Australian Open in January 100 percent fit, he came through an hour-and-40-minute knockabout with the Swiss master.
And a familiar face, in Leon Smith, was left optimistic by seeing the former world No 1’s movement during his charity exhibition against Federer on Tuesday.
‘I really observed him hit a week ago and was charmingly astounded by how well he was proceeding onward the court,’ said Smith. ‘It was really pleasing to see it again. I don’t think Roger was bluffing when he said he was also surprised at how well Andy was moving either.’
British Cup commander Smith trusts that Murray can completely recover his wellness in time for the Australian Open.
Smith added: ‘It’s still a long way to go before putting yourself through a fully competitive match, but considering where he was eight weeks ago and that there are eight weeks until Australia it is very encouraging.
”The good thing now is that he can concentrate absolutely on preparing for that. We have seen him working out in front of a big crowd and even if it was only an exhibition it is still playing versus Roger Federer in front of your home crowd. The whole thing should have sharpened his senses.’
