Andy Murray undergoes hip surgery, plans return to action

Andy Murray undergoes hip surgery, plans return to action

However, on Monday he released a statement to reveal that surgery has been undertaken and was successful.

"I have concerns if you haven't played for a year and you are coming back on grass then sometimes that can be hard on your body".

The three-time grand slam victor has been given a timeline of around seven to eight weeks to hit a ball on the court again, and around 14 weeks for a return to competitive play after this specific kind of surgery.

"I'm not finished playing tennis yet".

Murray says that he's very optimistic about how the surgery went because Dr. John O'Donnell was very happy about it.

The 30-year-old Briton, who has not played a competitive match for six months and last week withdrew from the Australian Open, posted an update on Facebook.

The former world number one is hoping to return in time for the grass-court season, with two of his three grand slam titles having come at the All-England Club.

Roger Federer was forced into a six-month injury lay-off during the second half of the 2016 campaign before he enjoyed a renaissance in form to claim two Grand Slam titles a year ago but Cowan believes the extended nature of Murray's absence makes his return a tougher task.

"He felt that my hip will be feeling better than it did a year ago and, obviously, I was still doing fine a year ago, I was ranked No 1 in the world".

The former world number one was previously expected and confirmed to take part in Melbourne for the 2018 Australian Open.

Murray also had minor groin surgery on December 18th, 2017, in Britain, delaying his departure to Australia. "I've been quoted [many] times for how long it's taken for players to get back from the surgery I've had, and up to 14 weeks is what I've been given".

He has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon last July. "Now it's time to give my body the recovery and rest I need".

"I'm certainly not going to be putting in the same amount of tournaments and effort to try to get to No. 1", Murray told the British news media.

"I'll come back from this".

"Moving forward I'll certainly be playing a reduced schedule, and then focusing more on trying to win major events and big tournaments rather than trying to achieve certain ranking goals". "The surgery allows me to extend my hip well, and I'll be able to sprint".

He concluded: "I'll come back from this".
