Murray shares encouraging video hitting serves in training as Wimbledon hopes hang by a thread

ANDY MURRAY shared a clip of himself practising serves as he desperately tries to be fit for Wimbledon.  The Scot uploaded the video to his Instagram story and gave fans hope they might see him back in SW19 this year.  Images show the 32-year-old training in a hi-tec sports vest – often worn by Premier League footballers during training – that tracks data such as heart rate and how far an athlete runs.  Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery in January after playing through the pain for years.  He announced his retirement from the sport prior to the op but hoped to feature at Wimbledon one last time.  Still yet to confirm his participation in UK tennis’ flagship event, the video – posted with the caption ‘How’s it looking?’ – certainly looks promising.  Murray recently told The Times: “I don’t have pain, I just need to see how good the hip can get really.  “I know from seeing what Bob Bryan has done that for doubles it will be fine.  “If I continue to feel good then I will obviously give it a shot in singles and see what happens – whereas in doubles I am pretty certain I will be able to play.
