Murray says hip pain has gone as he aims to carry on
Andy Murray has declared his hip resurfacing operation has been a success and he'snow targeting a return to top-level tennis.
The former World and British number one underwent the procedure in January after 18 months coping with chronic pain in his right hip.
Prior to the Australian Open, where he lost in the first round to Roberto Bautista Agut, Murray admitted the injury could force him into retirement.
But the two-time Wimbledon champion has declared he is pain-free and ready for a comeback - less than four months before play begins at SW19.
"I want to continue playing," he said. "I said that in Australia. The issue is I don't know whether it is going to be possible.
"I'm a lot happier now than I was over the last 12 months since I had the operation. I have no pain in my hip anymore and I was in a lot of pain for a long time.
"The rehab has been slow but it's been going pretty well. I just need to kind of wait and see how things progress. If it's possible, I'd certainly love to compete again.”
