Speaking at the Virgin Money London Marathon, where he was to fire the starting pistol for the elite men’s race, the US Open and double Olympic champion told BBC1: ‘There’s no pain any more. I’m happy, pain-free and enjoying my life.
‘I’ve been hitting a few balls from a stationary position. I’m still quite a long way from testing it properly, running around a court.
‘I just have to see what happens. I don’t feel any pressure that I need to come back but if my body feels good and I’m pain-free then I’ll give it a go.’
