Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has returned to the courts for the first time since his back operation two months ago, according to BBC Sport.

Murray, the first British man in 77 years to win at SW19, had not played since securing Great Britain's place in the Davis Cup World Group against Croatia. 

The Scot published a photo on his Facebook page today of himself playing in Miami with a caption reading: "Sun is shining, back on the courts." 

His return to playing is only one step in his full rehabilitation process, though. Murray is still still undecided whether he will take part in next January's Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the tennis calendar. 

Murray's back problems saw him pull out of the French Open earlier in the year and also meant he missed the London ATP World Tour Finals this month.

Having missed a number of big tournament following the procedure that saw him go under the knife, the Scot is sure to be relishing to the chance to get back into action as quickly as possible.

It's unlikely that he will return properly for a while yet, but for now fans will have boosted by the news that he is on the road to recovery.
