Its great to see Andy Murray back on court! His Brisbane return started off in decent fashion with a win over local favourite James Duckworth. Andy won the match 6-3 6-4.
Murray seems to be in a better place than he was 12 months ago, but he is still very unsure about his future. At present it seems like he is just happy to be back on court and playing.
“I was a bit nervous. But as the match went on I thought I moved well,” Murray told reporters after his 10th successive win in Brisbane, having won the tournament at both his previous appearances in 2012 and 2013.
“It’s my first match after a big break. It’s not easy to sum up [but] it’s been really hard the last 18 months, been a lot of ups and downs trying to get back on court.
“Being back now I am trying to enjoy it as much as I can, for as long as I can because I am not sure how much longer I have got.”
As an unseeded player in Brisbane he has a tough draw, with a second round clash with Russian fourth seed Daniil Medvedev.
