Further surgery an option for Murray

26th February 2020, 09:16 by Alex Jack

Andy Murray has confirmed he could have to go under the knife once more to resolve his long-term hip issue.

The former world number one was forced to pull out of Australian Open in January and then two ATP events earlier this month due to ongoing problems with his hip and a bruised pelvic bone.

Murray has now revealed he could be forced to have an operation to remove bone growth associated with the hip resurfacing surgery he underwent in January 2019.

"I would hope I should know by the end of next month whether I'm good to play or not with it," Murray said.

"That's what I have to wait for. And then the issue around that is, if they can't get to it with an arthroscope, which is obviously the hope, that I would then have to be opened up again. That obviously takes longer to recover."

Despite the further potential time out on the sidelines, the 32-year-old is still optimistic about his future and feels he is capable of getting back to grand slam tennis.

"At the end of last season, I was actually starting to play pretty well, I was feeling good and then this happened," he added. "I want to get back to playing in the slams. That's what excites me and interests me. There is no reason why I can't."
