Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has undergone hip-resurfacing surgery, after which he admitted he felt “battered and bruised.”The former world No. 1 said after his first-round loss to Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open that he would make a quick decision over whether to have the surgery in a bid to try to prolong his career, although the operation doesn’t guarantee he will play again. “I now have a metal hip as you can see in the second photo and I look like I’ve got a bit of a gut in photo one!” Speaking in Melbourne during the season-opening major, Bryan said: “Seeing the way Andy Murray is feeling hit a nerve with me. I would love to see him do a similar surgery, feel the relief that it gives. I think our hips are pretty similar: just worn down, no cartilage.”The American added: “I personally don’t underestimate Andy Murray. You look at the great workers in history: [Ivan] Lendl, [Jim] Courier, [Andy] Roddick. This guy is maybe even a step up from those guys.”There’s no evidence that it’s possible [to play again] in tennis. I mean, so much wear and tear. But I think he could do it.” 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 I now have a metal hip as you can see in the 2nd photo and I look like I’ve got a bit of a gut in photoA post shared by Andy Murray (@andymurray) on Jan 29, 2019 at 12:18am PSTMurray, 31, had another hip surgery 12 months ago in Melbourne and played only 12 matches in 2018 following his return at Queen’s Club in June.Before his loss to Bautista Agut, a tearful Murray said in a news conference that he had been in pain for “about 20 months” but had the option of either delaying surgery and making an emotional farewell at Wimbledon later this year or having it now and running the risk of never playing again.Doubles legend Bob Bryan had the hip-resurfacing procedure last August and encouraged Murray, a two-time Olympic champion, to follow suit, Bryan having made his comeback at the start of this season at the age of 40. The Scot on Tuesday posted a picture of himself on social media, confirming that he had decided to go through with surgery.”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,” he posted on Instagram and Facebook.
