Murray has been seen playing golf on a number of occasions since his latest hip surgery raising fans hopes that they will soon see him back playing competitive tennis again. But hitting a golf ball whilst static is a long way from tearing around a tennis court chasing down shots. It may well be that Murray has found that golf is a great way to satisfy his competitive sporting instincts whilst not aggravating his hip as it recovers from the latest surgery.

Murray has also been seen hitting tennis balls on a couple of occasions and it was also announced that he will have a wild card for the Queen’s Club tournament kept available for him until the last minute in case he decides he wants to play. If he did play at Queen’s it would greatly increase the likelihood of him also competing at Wimbledon this year.

Evans, currently ranked No. 81 in the ATP Rankings, has been rapidly climbing the rankings after a spell out of the game due to a ban for recreational drug abuse. Many believe his natural talent can see him challenge for the British No.1 sport currently held by Kyle Edmund but he will need to curb his wayward off court tendencies if he’s to achieve his full potential.
