After his first win in nearly a year, Andy Murray wasn’t ready to commit to playing at Wimbledon next week.

Murray beat Stan Wawrinka 6-1, 6-3 at the Eastbourne International in the second match of his comeback from long-term hip problems.

Murray returned last week at the Queen’s Club and lost to Nick Kyrgios in the first round.

He said if he believes his body can handle Grand Slam best-of-five-set matches, then he’ll play at Wimbledon, where he’s won twice.

“If I don’t, then obviously I won’t play,” Murray said. “I’m coming back from a very serious injury which is not easy.

“I’m not putting any pressure on myself to make that decision after one match here or two matches, because I don’t need to. I can decide when I want.

“The match with Nick was two hours, 45 minutes, and the slams, you have to be prepared for four hours. That (against Kyrgios) obviously could have gone another couple of sets potentially, and I didn’t feel great the following day.”
