World No 95 Murray, who climbed back into the top 100 this week for the first time since May 2018, has seen his career trajectory go down since 2017, undergoing multiple hip surgeries and recovery in a bid to get himself physically right again.

However, the former World No.1 has shown amazing resilience to make comebacks each time and recently revealed that he plans to do so as long as physically possible.

“I’m 34 years old and with the problems I’ve had over recent years, I’ve got to be careful. That’s why I went through all the recovery and training over the last few years.’- said the Scot.

The 34-year-old also reiterated that he doesn’t just plan to play for the sake of it, but also aims to remain competitive and win more matches and tournaments in the future. Murray faces a tough draw against Montpellier champion Alexander Bublik in the first round of the Rotterdam event.
