    Personally, I'm with James on this one - smaller tournies like Shengzen, Vienna etc served Andy very well coming back from back surgery and struggling in bigger events so feel that's probably a good, confidence building approach this time as well. When booking for tickets for Eastbourne I quietly hoped Andy would make an appearance if he was ready to play again. My fingers remain x'd, but happy to just wait and see. Whenever you're ready, Andy, and not a moment sooner!

    Really doesn't matter where first. I'm not bothered. Have no preference. But whatever happens I hope he is able to play Wimbledon.

    I hope he is able to play Wimbledon simply because I know how gutted he will be to have it happening and not be there.

    I think he missed it once before, didn't he - when he had a wrist injury?

    Yes, that's right. I remember he tried desperately to be able to play before having to accept that he couldn't.

    I'm with you and James. Better to make his comeback in smaller tournaments that will help his ranking and build up his confidence than rush back to Queens and Wimbledon. I hope too that he will make an appearance at Eastbourne but Andy should only come back when he feels ready for it. It won't be easy for him but really hope for the best for him. We all miss him.

    I seem to remember Agassi being out of the game for personal reasons for some time and as a result losing his ranking. He made his comeback in challenger events to boost his rankings and then went on to play the best tennis of his career.

    Here is the direct link to the article http://lastwordontennis.com/2018/06/...back-timeline/
    “I actually saw him yesterday and I didn’t recognise him. I saw this guy at Raynes Park and I saw him walking towards me and thought that kind of look like Andy, it kind of looks like an accountant as well,” Kokkinakis told me, “And then he got closer and I was like ‘oh **** it is Andy.’”

    What could make a three-time Grand Slam champion so unrecognisable? “He’s lost a bit of weight I think.” the Australian explained, and it is no surprise; to have Murray’s physique you need to be able to work at it every day. It seems like the Brit has not been able to train as much as he wants and that could be so demoralising for a player who thrives off of hard work.

    I love to look on the bright side of everything, but if you are only hitting 45 minutes a day then surely you could not compete in a best-of-five, fourteen-day event that starts in less than a month. Kokkinakis would be surprised if he can make his return at the Queen’s Club, “So if he’s ready [for Queen’s], hats off to him.”

    Doesn’t sound positive, but other reports are more positive. Who knows? We will have to wait for AM to tell us. Equally the rumours about Rosmalin were right.
