The Scot looked set to call time on his career in 2019 when he broke down in tears after his first-round defeat at the Australian Open and told reporters that he needed major hip surgery.

However, he has since returned to the tour and worked his way back into the top 50 in the world. The 35-year-old wants to keep going for as long as possible, but is aware that another serious setback would likely spell the end of his playing days.

‘If my body is in good shape and I’m still able to compete consistently, I’ll keep playing,’ Murray said.

‘But I can’t look so far in advance with the age I’m at and with the issues I’ve had. If I was to have a big injury, I probably wouldn’t try to come back from that.’

Murray won 26 of his 45 singles matches on the ATP tour in 2022, and made it to two finals, losing both.

The three-time grand slam champion had an underwhelming year at the majors, though, failing to make it past the third round at any of the three that he competed in.

Having spent time in the US during the off-season, Murray feels he is now in ‘better shape’ heading into 2023, with the Australian Open getting underway in less than a month.

‘I spent three weeks in Florida, getting my body right and getting some work done on my game and it went really well,’ Murray added.

‘I’m certainly in better shape than I was. A lot of work was done in the gym, trying to build up my endurance and my stamina a bit and I’m hoping that’s going to help me next year.’
