Andy Murray recovering well

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has posted on his Facebook page and on Twitter account that he is recovering well but has not picked up a racquet yet after one month of surgery.

The Brit, who recently confirmed that he would miss next month's ATP World Tour Finals following back surgery, is currently in fourth place in the rankings.

Despite Murray's claims that he is more interested in winning Grand Slam titles, Boris Becker believes that the Wimbledon champion should turn his attention to getting to the top of the men's game.

The winner of six grand slam tournaments said Murray, who had remedial surgery to ease chronic pain in his lower back last month and then announced he would rest for the remainder of 2013, was right to take a long break.

"It's no joke. It's not a torn muscle, it's not a twisted ankle. I mean it's a disc, you only have one spine – so it's a very serious injury. I think we should all be concerned. To have surgery is not a minor thing. I think we will know a lot more when he comes back.

"It makes no sense for him to come back quickly and risk not being completely healed; I totally understand that but he should be back for the Australian Open. I think that has to be the goal. Now we are in the middle of October, so there's still a little bit of time left."

Murray had become first British player in 77 years to win the Wimbledon crown when he triumphed in July this year. He was world no.2 at that moment but now he has fallen down to world no.4 ranking.

He was also unable to defend his US Open crown in September.
