Andy Murray's mother Judy believes we are witnessing a "rebirth" of the former world No 1 following his title success in Antwerp last weekend.

Murray defeated his old rival Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open in Antwerp to claim his first ATP Tour singles title for more than two-and-a-half years.

In an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport, Judy heaped praise on the three-time Grand Slam champion, who is expecting the birth of his third child with wife Kim in the next few days.

"If he is well, Andy is capable of anything," Judy told the Italian daily newspaper. "In a few days Andy and Kim's third child should arrive. We'll all go to London, great-grandmother included, to celebrate all the events at once. After all, it's also a rebirth for Andy."

Milan (AFP) - Judy Murray has hailed son Andy ’s stunning comeback from hip surgery to win his first title in more than two years in Antwerp as “a rebirth ” for the former world number one. “If he is well, Andy is capable of anything,” Judy Murray said of his return in an interview with Italian daily

The 32-year-old shed tears of a very different nature at the Australian Open only nine months, admitting right hip problems could force him off court for good.

Instead, he underwent hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January and the operation has been a huge success, culminating in a fairy-tale comeback in Belgium which saw him climb 116 places to 127 in the latest ATP rankings.

"Seeing him suffer has broken my heart," she continued. "The victory on the court is really a great joy but the greatest triumph was seeing him play without pain and walk without needing crutches.

"There were times when he couldn't even put on his socks and tie his shoes. Playing tennis was the least of his problems.

"Now he's fine, he has a wonderful family, he can look to the future without fear and pain at last. But he is such a warrior on court that I knew he would not give up."

  MIKE DICKSON: Andy Murray is no normal athlete... his remarkable comeback to win the European Open will rank alongside his best victories MIKE DICKSON: Having witnessed Andy Murray emerge from a Scottish backwater to break the mould of underachieving British tennis I should have known better.  Having seen him break countless opponents over the years by sheer force of will I should have realised that, when his face creased into tears during that famous press conference at the Australian Open, he was not entirely finished, even though he suggested so himself.
