The ATP circuit has been through a lot recently. At the time being, the summit consists of two older names (some glorious ones though) and a rather disrupting Alexander Zverev of Germany. Federer and Nadal might be on top, but the 21-year-old seems to have gathered a decent momentum. His latest success at ''Caja Magica'' in Madrid earned him a third Masters 1000 title and the second one on clay after the one he had won in Rome back in 2017.

With Stan Wawrinka making an unsuccessful appearance this week in Rome, everyone's thoughts might be just flowing onto another relevant name of the last decade.

Andy Murray's comeback is now within range as the two-time Olympic gold medalist seeks to bounce back into the Tennis elite.

A busy schedule and the burden of expectations Andy Murray must bear on his shoulders

Watching either Djokovic, Wawrinka, Nishikori or even Raonic struggling to bring back the lost mojo (even partially) there's no way to ignore the uncertainty a consistent comeback would pose for a top tennis player. And, in like everything else, where there is an expectation there is pressure. Andy Murray drew a clear picture of his initial comeback. If all goes well, he will be playing a total of thee events on grass. He will kick-start his campaign in Netherland as he signed up for the ATP 250 event at 's-Hertogenbosch.

The next challenge would be part of his usual swing on this surface with the ATP 500 event at Queen's on his sight. Should he get some momentum during the warm-up prior to Wimbledon Championships, Andy Murray has to be considered part of the favorites' pack. Usually, he does well, especially given the home crowd support he would most definitely enjoy receiving.

A completely different landscape

Approximately ten months ago, Andy Murray stepped off the big stage due to a hip injury. At the time, he was very well positioned at the top of the men's ranking. Now, he is about to let go of all of his ranking points due to lack of activity. Andy Murray could quickly bounce back if he gets things right from the get-go.

His rivals have to defends thousands of points during various chunks of the seasons.

On the other side, Andy Murray must fence off the tremendous amount of pressure the media exposure and all the hype around him would produce. What we know for sure is that an interesting second part of the season could provide us with a great deal of entertainment and a decent dose of high-quality tennis.
