The 31-year-old underwent a hip resurfacing procedure in January, and he said it may mean he wouldn’t be possible to play professionally again.

But since the surgery he has spoken with a cautious optimism about his future in the sport. However, he has rated his chances of competing at Wimbledon this year at less than 50 per cent.

The video has also been shared by The Tennis Podcast on twitter, with hundreds of tennis fans showing their love and support for the two-time Wimbledon champion.
