    World No. 1 and two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray says he’s OK to play beginning Monday despite recent hip problems.

    “It’s felt much better the last few days,” the 30-year-old said per the BBC before he begins the defense of his title on Monday against Alexander Bublik.

    “I’ve had hip problems since I was very young. Been very sore the last few weeks.

    “If I feel like I do today, I’ll be fine to play the tournament. I’ll be fine to play seven matches.”

    Murray added that he hopes he’s still playing at Wimbledon “for five, six, seven more years if possible, but I don’t know what’s going to happen.

    “I just think because of what [Roger] Federer’s doing just now, which is incredibly rare, a lot of people think that everyone’s going to start doing that now and I’m not sure that’s going to be the case so I want to make sure I make the most of all of these chances that I have left.”
