Murray in action before the hip surgery in Melbourne
Andy Murray wants to make a comeback at Wimbledon after successfully undergoing hip surgery.
Speaking for the first time after the surgery in Melbourne, the 30-year-old described the procedure as ‘successful’ and targeted a return to action in time for the grass-court season.
Sparking via his official Facebook feed on Monday, Murray revealed: “Today I underwent successful right hip surgery at the St Vincent Hospital in Melbourne.
“I’d like to thank Dr John O’Donnell and all of the staff for looking after me.
“I look forward to returning to competitive tennis during the grass court season. Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and support over the last few days.
“I’ll comeback from this.”
Murray withdrew from the Australian Open last Thursday after admitting he was not fit to compete.
The former world number one has not featured in a competitive match since he was knocked out of Wimbledon in July, but warned he is not finished with the sport yet.
“I’m not finished playing tennis yet,” he declared.
“I’m going to be competing at the highest level again.
“I’m very optimistic about the future – the surgeon is very happy about how it went.”
