A new documentary series charting Andy Murray's return from injury is due to launch on Amazon Prime Video at the end of November.

The former world number one, who all-but retired from professional tennis in an emotional press conference earlier this year, is now in the early stages of his comeback from career-saving hip surgery, and has his sights set on a return to the top of the men's singles game.

After success in doubles and shorter-form singles matches in 2019, Murray is eager to challenge himself over five sets and will return to Grand Slam tennis at January's Australian Open. It was in Melbourne at the start of this year where Murray finally made public the full extent of his hip problems and tearfully announced he was set to quit the sport.

Fast-forward nearly 12 months and the picture is much brighter. "I was asked what would be success in Australia and I don't know how I will perform - I'm not expecting to win the tournament - but if I can play a five-set match and get through and have no ill effects on the hip then that is success," Murray said.

"Because I know I will be able to compete in the major tournaments without having to worry about it.

"I have played three-set matches and some long ones recently, but the best of five is an extra hour, hour-and-a-half on top of that so I will find out in Australia.

"If I can get through that tournament and get through some long matches potentially feeling good it would be a big positive."

And tennis fans can now follow his roller-coaster journey thanks to an Amazon series which lifts the lid on the twists and turns of his recovery.

When is Andy Murray's tennis documentary released?

'Andy Murray: Resurfacing' will be available on Amazon Prime Video from November 29.

What is it about?

The documentary shows the career-saving hip surgery Murray underwent in January 2019 and his battle to return to the courts.

Despite fearing the procedure would end his career for good, the Scot is now growing in confidence he can get himself back to the top of the game when he was winning Davis Cups, Grand Slams and Olympic titles.

“I think that I can,” he said. “I think my body showed I’m going to be able to do that, to play at a high level.”

Following a successful period on the hard courts in Asia, where the double-Wimbledon winner defeated top-10 player Matteo Berrettini and pushed Dominic Thiem close in September, he closed out the season with victory over Stan Wawrinka in the European Open final in Antwerp.

However, weeks before the success over Wawrinka, Murray had been thinking about retirement again before he started to notice a change during tournaments in Zhuhai, Beijing and Shanghai during September.

Now though, he is dreaming of wowing the crowds at the All England Club once more. On the prospect of competing at Wimbledon again, Murray replied: "To play there, yes (I'm feeling positive), but winning? No.

"I wouldn't put my money on me to win the event just now, but if I can get there and be pain free, I can do well."
