Andy Murray is still out of the fighting pit, but his long-awaited comeback is finally in sight. His return to competitive tennis will make some headlines in the near future. The former world No. 1 saw his career derailed by a long series of medical issue culminating with a career-threatening hip injury.

The Brit's story during the last 18 months or so has been quite intense. Reaching the ATP summit in the latest stages of 2016 was followed by a disastrous 2017 when the lack of form and injuries crippled his efforts.

The action is currently concentrated across Europe and its clay court battlegrounds. The grass season follows next, and that's when Andy Murray will start his comeback bid.

Andy Murray's goals and his possible schedule on grass

The grass court season usually is a good fit for a specific type of players.

Widely regarded as the fastest surface of the pro circuit, the grass court segment offers an extra chance for big hitters and those who mostly rely on a powerful serve. And, of course, there is Roger Federer who is always up for a Wimbledon bid.

But, this year's course could be a bit different as Andy Murray [VIDEO] will try to claim his lost spot in the tennis elite. A two-time Wimbledon champion himself, the 30-year-old has also clinched an Olympic gold medal on grass beating Roger Federer [VIDEO] in that hard-to-forget 2012 London final.

Now, with his comeback brewing up for a while, Andy Murray could steal the show on this surface. He will make his first official appearance in a rather unusual spot as he went for an extended schedule that will start at 's-Hertogenbosch.

The next hotspot on his schedule will be at Queen's, the ATP 500 event he usually attends prior to Wimbledon.

If all goes well, Andy Murray could head to Wimbledon on a high note and perhaps with several wins under his belt.

Every comeback is a gamble where risks and uncertainties abound

It's no further than the last year when we witnessed two awesomely built comebacks with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the spotlights. With that in mind, it was easier to assume that Murray and Djokovic would follow a similar path a year later. It wasn't the case, and even if Djokovic has resumed playing for a while, he is still miles away from delivering his finest tennis. And the same could go with Andy Murray who will resume playing in less than two months.

One of the most prominent male tennis players of the last decade, Murray will see the questions piling up at his door, and he might not have a proper reply for all of them.
