Andy Murray is expected to make a full recovery from his back problems and should be fit and raring to go for the start of 2014.

Murray has been forced to pull out of the end of season ATP World Tour Finals in London as he recovers from surgery but he should be fit for the start of next year and the Australian Open.

The Scot ended Britain’s 77-year wait for a Wimbledon Champion, to add to his US Open title the previous year, but he wants more slams and plans to start 2014 with a bang.

Murray first needs to recover from the surgery and will then undergo a grueling pre-season program in Miami to ensure he is fully fit and former British number one Jeremy Bates has no doubt he will be back.

“The back is such a core area of the body, that you have to be very careful with it,” he said. “But I think he will be back for the Australian Open, which is obviously what he has been targeting.

“I wouldn’t think it will take that long for him to feel completely right again. But once he does, he will be competing for slams again.”
