Tennis: Andy Murray Undergoes Major Surgery In Bid To Alleviate Severe Pain Threatening His Career

Andy Murray will do everything he can to professionally work on his hip and make some kind of return to tennis after revealing that he underwent surgery in London on Monday.
The twice Wimbledon champion revealed that, as expected, he has gone through a 'hip resurfacing' operation following his dramatic five set match at the Australian Open, and prior admission that the pain had become overwhelming.

It is understood the procedure was similar to that performed in August on American doubles specialist Bob Bryan, who has returned to the tour this month at the age of 40. 

Murray posted on his Instagram account:

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 πŸ˜€ I now have a metal hip as you can see in the 2nd photo πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ and I look like I've got a bit of a gut in photo 1πŸ˜‚

While it is way too early to predict what will happen now, Murray plans to leave no stone unturned in seeing how far he might be able to go physically, once his body has settled down after the surgery. 

At the very least, he expects his overall quality of life to improve.
