Having Andy Murray as a top gun has put British tennis back on the world's radar in big style. For more than a decade, Andy Murray has been the best from his nation, having achieved some unbelievable heights in terms of tennis performance.

But, a decade of steady results and constant presence at the top of the ATP rankings came to an end following a grueling hip injury. Several months outside the circuit wasn't exactly helpful, which, in turn, forced Murray to choose the hardest and most dangerous option of arthroscopic surgery to repair his injured hip.

With a new comeback schedule in sight, it seems reasonable to pinpoint Murray's possible comeback date somewhere during the summer session on the grass court. It would be in the very proximity of Wimbledon, a tournament Murray holds dearly on his heart.

Given the contest, Murray must be looked at as being an overachiever

This current era in men's tennis is perhaps the most brutal one in the entire history of this sport. Almost at the same time, Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic were the gladiators that have shaped this era's features. Having a 48 Grand Slam titles toll combined, these three have been winning since the mid-2000s. But, there has been no year without Andy Murray trying to put his mark on the history book too.

Almost ten years ago, a young Andy Murray stormed the main stage to reach his first Grand Slam final. It happened at the 2008 US Open, and despite the loss, it gave Murray an incentive for the next few years.

At a point in the next few years, Murray gave the impression that he might end up being the eternal runner-up. Overall, he made it into eleven Grand Slam finals winning only three of them.

However, when it comes to the Masters 1000s records, he holds an impressive 14-7 win/loss score. It may seem a thin bag compared to the rest of the Big Four, but, Murray has more Masters 1000 titles than Pete Sampras (11 singles titles at this level).

But Murray hasn't been the only one trying to make a name for himself. Stan Wawrinka captured three Majors too thus stirring up the debate of a potential Big Five.

But, Murray possesses something that neither Wawrinka or the other three tennis star has - two Olympic gold medals.

Andy Murray is needed back where he genuinely belongs

It's going to be a struggle to get back to the top as Murray has been suffering the direct consequences of being inactive. But, he is needed back in the game; his tennis output has been a weighting factor which, to a significant extent, has prevented a complete oligopoly in the ATP circuit.

Whatever the future holds for Andy Murray, his legacy will be one of a player that puts in every ounce of energy and mastery in an attempt to become the best tennis player the world has ever seen.
