Former World No. 1 Andy Murray has not played a tour-level match since 20 November due to a pelvic injury, a setback after returning from hip resurfacing surgery last year. But there is good news on the horizon: the Scot is targetting a return at the Miami Open presented by Itau.
“In the short, short term I’m training to try and get ready for Miami,” Murray told Amazon Prime. “I’ve done so much rehab these past few months that in terms of my strength and everything, all the muscles around the hip are working well. It’s just I hadn’t played tennis.”

In the interview, Murray said he hit only twice during a three-month period following the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid. Previously, Murray was brought to tears in Antwerp last October after lifting the trophy, which came in just the sixth tour-level event of his comeback. It was the Scot’s first ATP Tour singles title since 2017 Dubai.
The pelvic injury was a tough setback for the 46-time tour-level titlist. But now, he has his eyes set on Miami, where he has emerged victorious in 2009 and 2013.
“I need some time to build up and feel good on the court again,” Murray said. “But that’s kind of my plans just now unless I have a setback or something.”
