Andy Murray’s efforts on court before surgery polished off his season saw him take home the BBC Sport Personality of the Year award in December 2013; it would be a long time, however, before he won another tennis trophy.

The surgery itself held no undue complications but undoubtedly had a pronounced effect on his form for much of last year. A quarter-final run in the 2014 Australian Open was a promising start, and Murray also managed to reach the semi-finals of the French Open in May and prove a valuable asset in the Davis Cup. However, the defence of his Wimbledon title ended at the quarter-final stage, with Murray suffering a disappointing straight-sets defeat to Grigor Dimitrov.

Building his stamina back up to the impressive levels that have defined much of Murray’s career took time, and even when his match fitness returned it was clear that niggling internal doubts still remained over his ability to compete at the highest level.

With a ranking threatening to drop outside the top ten and his chances of competing in the ATP World Tour Finals in London hanging in the balance, Murray embarked on a run that would see him win titles in Shenzhen, Vienna and Valencia towards the end of last year. Still, he appeared to have lost crucial ground on his rivals ahead of the 2015 season.
