Captioning the video, a determined and focused Murray simply labelled it: ‘Rehab day 1.’
Murray has not played a competitive match since he was knocked out of Wimbledon in July, and it was the persistent niggles of injury which forced him into making the bold decision to have surgery.
Prior to the op a number of former tennis pros had voiced their concerns regarding whether Murray would ever be the same after going under the knife.

The Scotsman however has remained defiant and is aiming to pick up where he left off sooner rather than later.
‘I’m not finished playing tennis yet. I’m going to be competing at the highest level again,’ Murray told the BBC.
‘I’m very optimistic about the future – the surgeon is very happy about how it went.’
