Andy Murray undergoes hip surgery, plans return to action

Murray is a two-time Wimbledon victor and has been champion at Queen's in London on five occasions, both of which are played on grass courts.

Former world No 1 Andy Murray has vowed to return and "compete at the highest level" after undergoing hip surgery in Melbourne on Monday. I'd like to thank Dr John O'...

"Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and support over the last few days. I'll come back from this".

"The surgeon felt that my hip will be feeling better than it did a year ago", Murray said. "I was still doing fine a year ago, ranked No1 in the world".

The only complete match he has played since Wimbledon was at his fundraising "Andy Murray Live" event in Glasgow, where he was beaten by Roger Federer.

"He has given himself a goal which is the grass-court period - I think that will be tough".

"The rest of my body feels fantastic".

Cash, the 1987 Wimbledon men's singles champion, told The Sunday Times that Murray had revealed to him during an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi last month that he was suffering pain not only his right hip but in his left as well.

"I've obviously been going through a really hard period with my hip for a long time and have sought counsel from a number of hip specialists".

When asked whether Murray can still win Grand Slam titles on his return, Cowan, who described the British No 1 as a "great champion", said: "I think it is an impossible question to answer".

"So if I can get myself to 95 per cent of my best, I believe that's enough to compete at the highest level. I would say that is the most important aspect". "However, this is something I may have to consider, but let's hope not".

Murray, though, insists he will continue to battle on, even if it means he's no longer considered among the top four players in the world.

"I think it [undergoing surgery] is a positive move - he obviously wants to come back", Cowan told Sky Sports News.

"I'm certainly not going to be putting in the same amount of tournaments and effort to try to get to number one in the world". One of the things that I would like to do is play until my eldest daughter is able to watch me and have a small understanding of what it is I've done for my living.

"I'm going to take my time to make sure that the rehab is done properly, and make sure that the surgery is as successful as it can be", he told reporters Monday.
