Murray said: “I’m sure that, tennis-wise, I will be able to keep up with the guys.

“I don’t feel the game has moved on and I won’t be able to get back.”

The rankings are still dominated by Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer.

Murray added: “A lot of the same guys are still there. So why not?

“If someone can give me a reason why I shouldn’t be able to compete again I would listen, but I haven’t really been given one.”

Murray was at a crossroads in January when he announced he was on the verge of quitting.

Yet the two-time Wimbledon champion has been pleasantly surprised by the speed of his return after having a metal hip implant.

He added: “I know how bad I felt in Australia and how bad I felt the last year I played singles here.

“And I feel better now than I did then. So if physically I can get back to a good level, my tennis is still fine.”

Murray is set to play his second mixed doubles match with Serena Williams tomorrow against Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo, the No 14 seeds.
