World's current number one in professional tennis men's single, Andy Murray, came back to court on Monday, April 10th for a charity match.

Fresh from his elbow injury recovery, Murray attended his first game for the month after withdrawing the Miami Open which was supposed to start third week of March through first week of April. The charity match was held in Zurich, Switzerland and his opponent was current Australian Open champion, Roger Federer.

According to BBC, last Monday's match was Murray's first singles exhibition of the year. Federer won the game 3-6, 6-7 with Murray jokingly swapping roles with one of the match's ball-boy to take over is place. During the match point, the 29-year old took the ball-boy to finish his game for him and resulted to an ace set for Murray. However, Federer won the match during the tie break for the second set.

Murray opened this year's tournament on the first week of January with the Qatar Open held in Doha, Qatar. He eventually went to the Finals but lost to Novak Djokovic. After that was the Australian Open held on the third to the fourth week of January in Melbourne, Australia, where Murray lost fourth round to German tennis player Mischa Zverev. The Dubai Championships followed after that and Murray was able to grab his first championship of the year, defeating Spanish pro, Fernando Verdasco.

Last March, Murray had his fourth tournament of the year, the Indians Wells Masters held in Indian Wells, USA. It has been reported that he had already been suffering from right elbow injury that time, which resulted to a second round loss to Vasik Pospisil from Canada. Shortly after that, Murray withdrew from the Miami Open in order to recover from his injury.

Now that Murray has already been fully recovered, his next upcoming tournament is the Monte Carlo Masters to be held next week. It has been reported that he is not yet a hundred percent sure if he can play well from his fresh recovery, but the Tennis champion said that he highly hopes he can.
