But that did not solve the problem.The night he lost to Roberto Bautista Agut in Australia, Murray said he would decide quickly whether to have surgery again.“I have an option to have another operation, which is a little bit more kind of severe than what I’ve had before — having my hip resurfaced, which will allow me to have a better quality of life and be out of pain. That’s something that I’m seriously considering right now,” he said at the time. “Some athletes have had that and have gone back to competing. But there’s obviously no guarantees with that. The reason for having an operation like that is not to return to professional sports, you know, it’s just for a better quality of life.”Murray had been keeping in touch with American doubles player Bob Bryan, who had the same hip resurfacing with a metal implant last August.By December, Bryan was back at practice. And he made his Grand Slam return at the Australian Open.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
