Andy Murray set to return next week

Andy Murray has missed the last few months of tennis due to recovery from surgery on his back. But it appears as though he is ready to make his return to the courts.

Murray is looking to get back to playing competitive tennis next week as he will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Abu Dhabi, according to the Associated Press.

Mubadala World Tennis Championship organizers say the Wimbledon champion, who has been sidelined since surgery for a back problem, would play at the hard-court event also featuring Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Murray says “coming back from injury is never easy and the lineup this year is so strong but it’s exactly the test I need to see where my game is at.”

On Sunday, Murray was voted the BBC sports personality of the year after becoming the first British man to win the Wimbledon singles title in 77 years.

Will Murray bounce back from a difficult past four months, or will he notice the effects of not playing since September?

Do you think Murray’s comeback will be much like Rafael Nadal’s, who bounced back from a knee injury and rose to the number one overall player. Sound off in the comment section below.
