Andy Murray: I can get back to my best after injury
The Scot is aiming to make a return in Brisbane ahead of the Australian Open.
Andy Murray believes he can get back to his best after a long injury-lay-off.
The former world number one has not played since a hip injury hampered his performance at Wimbledon and later led to his withdrawal from the US Open.
The Scot has targeted a return at the Brisbane International at the end of December ahead of the Australian Open.
Asked if he could reach his previous levels of fitness and performance on his return, he said he believed it was possible but also sounded a note of caution.
"I believe I will," he said.
"You never know when you're coming back from any injury but that's what I'm working towards.
"We have to see. I believe that will be the case."
Murray, who has won three grand slams and two Olympic gold medals, said he might not reach his peak immediately but would work towards it over time.
"When I get back on the court next year and start playing again it might not come immediately at the beginning of the year," he said.

"I might not play my best tennis straight off the bat but there's nothing to make me think I won't.
"You never know how you'll come back from injuries but I believe that with the work that I'm doing, I'm still hitting the ball well in practice.
"There's a difference between that 75% or 80% practice and being flat out 100% for two-and-a-half or three hours on the match court.
"Until I do that I can't say for certain but I think I'll be able to come back just fine."
Murray was in Glasgow for his charity event Andy Murray Live, which included an exhibition match against Roger Federer.
Federer won on a tie-break after both men won a set 6-3.
The Swiss warned his host against coming back to competitive tennis before making a full recovery and Murray made it clear that his journey back to fitness is not all smooth progress.
"Things have been going pretty well in the rehab but you just never know," he explained.
"You take each week as it comes, you have setbacks and then things can go quite quickly as well. I've been training for a few weeks now. Some days I've felt great and some not so good but I'm getting there.
"I'll come back, like Roger said, when I'm 100% fit. I probably made a mistake trying to get ready for the US Open but it was the last major of the year and I wanted to give it a go."
