Former world No. 1 Andy Murray has announced he will make his singles comeback in the Cincinnati Masters, which starts Sunday.Murray suggested he was facing likely retirement during an emotional news conference at the Australian Open in January, but the Briton has gradually offered a more optimistic outlook since undergoing hip resurfacing surgery and making a successful return as a doubles player. Just five months on from his major operation, the 32-year-old won the men’s doubles at Queen’s Club in June alongside Feliciano Lopez.He then also featured in the men’s and mixed doubles at Wimbledon, partnering with Serena Williams in the latter, before playing in the Citi Open alongside brother Jamie and teaming up with Lopez again at the Rogers Cup.Murray has now determined he is ready to try his hand at competitive singles action once again, confirming on Facebook that he had accepted a wild card into the Cincinnati Masters.”That feeling when you accept a wildcard for the singles in Cinci,” Murray posted on his official Facebook page, together with the hashtags “#LetsDoThis” and “#HereWeGo”.mood when we heard @andy_murray was returning to singles at @CincyTennis pic.twitter.com/hLoJZNtRCa— US Open Tennis (@usopen) August 9, 2019The announcement is sure to fuel speculation over Murray’s potential participation in the U.S. Open, a tournament he won in 2012 to claim the first of his three Grand Slam titles to date.He went on to win Wimbledon twice after that breakthrough success at Flushing Meadows, his first triumph in 2013 ending a 77-year wait for a British men’s singles champion at the grass-court slam. Murray reached the top of the world rankings in November 2016 before his long-term hip issues became more debilitating.After undergoing hip surgery in January 2018, Murray struggled in his comeback and cut a disconsolate figure in Melbourne this year when he suggested his illustrious career was coming to an end.However, Murray described his latest operation, which has left him pain-free, as “life-changing” and he is now on the brink of completing a remarkable return to top-level singles action.

By Christine Rumleskie- Advertisement -More than 30 residents attended an information session on the new Fort St. John Hospital project that’s currently under construction. The ‘Neighbourhood Community Committee’ meeting was held in the current hospital’s boardroom on Wednesday night. It was designed to allow consultation with residents who live nearby the construction grounds.Members from Northern Health, the City of Fort St. John, and developer ISL Health, were on hand to answer questions from the public.Project Manager for Northern Health, Tom Sparrow, says he was impressed with the way resident’s engaged in the consultation.[asset|aid=2508|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=7c7cc4f339da340d7c2cd4d512431b28-Sparrow 2_4_Pub.mp3] Advertisement [asset|aid=2509|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=7c7cc4f339da340d7c2cd4d512431b28-Sparrow 1_5_Pub.mp3] Sparrow says there’s going to be plenty more consultation sessions, as planners want to make up several committees to engage the entire City.The consultation dates will be announced in the near future. The project broke ground last spring, and should be complete by 2012. A residential care facility is included in the design plan.Many residents had questions relating to road closures, as well as routes that would be used during the construction process.Others were impressed to find out that the wood used to make the facility would be purchased from the local mill.Sparrow added that since many of the developers live in Fort St. John, most of the questions that were asked at the committee meeting were anticipated.Advertisement Photo: This hospital diorama was on display, as concerned residents listened intently to an update from Northern Health and ISL on Wednesday – Christine Rumleskie/Energeticcity.ca
