ANDY Murray further postponed his return from hip surgery last night - but spoke with cautious optimism about his hopes of featuring at Wimbledon next month.

Murray, who won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016, was last seen competitively when he was knocked out in the quarter-finals at the All England Club previous year.

With Wimbledon fast approaching, Murray says he has returned to training and playing in the grass court season remains his aim.

'It has been very slow, I've been out getting close to a year now which is a lot longer than I expected'. But I'm getting closer to playing again.

He was still on the entry list on Tuesday afternoon for the Rosmalen grass tournament in Holland which starts on Monday, but the former world No 1 confirmed in a sponsored interview in London that he has had serious issues with his rehabilitation after a hip operation in Melbourne in January. "It is with regret that I won't be ready to play in Hertogenbosch".

Murray underwent surgery in Australia in January after pulling out of the Australian Open.

As World Environment Day got underway on 5 June, Andy Murray joined forces with sponsor, Jaguar Cars, to launch the manufacturer's new electric vehicle, the I-PACE.

Andy Murray has made the unsurprising move to withdraw from a Wimbledon warm-up event the Libema Open in s-Hertogenbosch as he continues to step up his recovery from a hip injury.

While pointing at Roger Federer as an obvious contender for Wimbledon he added: 'I'm hoping I will be there'.

If he has doubts still, there is precious little time to eradicate them before Wimbledon, which starts on 2 July. I am not quite ready to return.

Judy Murray said her son was now back on the practice courts, though she warned he would not rush back.

"He will be guided by his body and how he feels". I just came from the court.

As a coach who knows Murray well pointed out, his preferred modus operandi has always been to heavily "load up" training and practice-wise before important phases of the season.
