Andy Murray has confirmed he has undergone hip resurfacing surgery.

The three-time Grand Slam champion revealed in an emotional news conference ahead of the Australian Open his intention to retire after this year’s Wimbledon, but admitted the event in Melbourne could be the final tournament of his career.


Murray was unsure whether to undergo the procedure, which involves putting a metal place into the joint, and admitted there were no guarantees he would be able to make a successful comeback but wanted to ensure “a better quality of life”.

“I underwent a hip resurfacing surgery in London yesterday [Monday] morning,” he [posted on Instagram].

“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 photo 1.”

Murray suffered a thrilling five-set defeat to Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round at the Australian Open, where he defied expectations to nearly mount a remarkable comeback from two sets down.
