Murray Undergoes Hip Surgery In London

Former World No. 1 has second surgery

Andy Murray has confirmed that he underwent right hip surgery in London on Monday.

The former World No. 1 posted a message on his Instagram account, including an X-ray photo, stating, “I underwent a hip resurfacing surgery in London yesterday morning...feeling a bit battered and bruised just now but hopefully that will be the end of my hip pain. I now have a metal hip.”

The operation comes two weeks on from a first-round loss to Roberto Bautista Agut in the Australian Open first round. The 31-year-old initially underwent right hip surgery in January 2018 and returned to competitive tennis six months later, playing a total of 15 tour-level matches.

American Bob Bryan returned to the ATP Tour a few weeks ago following the same procedure last summer. He partnered his twin, Mike Bryan, to the Australian Open doubles quarter-finals.
