London: World No.4 Andy Murray believes he will return from back surgery faster, stronger and be able to play tennis shots that were beyond him in the past few years.

According to the Guardian, unfathomable as that may sound, given that he is the Wimbledon champion, Murray feels that the pain in his back has held him back, stopping him from playing his best tennis.

The world No. 4, whose rehab has taken him to Chelsea`s training ground in Cobham, underwent surgery in September and has refused to set a date for his return, saying that he will enter the Australian Open only if he feels fit enough to win it, the report said.

Murray said that he wanted to be free in his movement again and he would just have to wait and see how it goes, but he expects himself to return faster and stronger.
