Andy Murray has revealed that he is “pain free” in his hip after undergoing surgery, and hopes to resurrect his tennis career as a result.
The three-time Grand Slam winner is bidding to regain his fitness in an effort to play at Wimbledon this summer, having undergone an operation to have his right hip ‘resurfaced’ after struggling with persistent pain in the joint for the last two years.
Fears for his career arose after his first-round exit at the Australian Open in January, but after going under the knife the following month, Murray revealed on Wednesday that he is finally free of the debilitating injury and plans on continuing his career if his recovery allows him to.
“I want to continue playing for sure,” Murray said. “I have no pain in my hip anymore.
“The rehab is slow but going pretty well. I just need to wait and see how things progress. If it’s possible I’d love to compete again.”
