“I now have a metal hip. I feel a little tired and hurt, I hope this is the end of my hip pain, ”wrote Murray on Instagram, where he published an x-ray image of the hip.
This photo, however, also gave details that a British tennis player might prefer to keep for herself.
The former number 1 in the world hopes that the operation will be free from chronic pain. Murray was already working last year, but he continued to suffer from his right thigh.
Shot, 31, said at an emotional press conference ahead of the Australian Open that the end of his tennis career was near. "The pain is too strong, I do not want to continue," said Murray through tears. In fact, he wants to finish at Wimbledon, the Grand Slam on the grass in London, in which he won the two-time Olympic champion in 2013 and 2016, but he already acknowledged in Melbourne that the Australian Open could be his last tournament. "If I allow myself to play sports, it does not mean that I will return as the best athlete, but to have a better quality of life in the future."
Murray, who also won the US Open in 2012, was eliminated in the first round by Roberto Bautista Agut. After this tense five setter, the Briton left his future open. “Who knows, you can see me again,” he told the audience, who loudly encouraged him. Most likely, this will be the last batch of books, now that Murray has chosen surgery and he has to rehabilitate for a long time.
