Britain’s former world primary Andy Murray faces an important few weeks to search out out if he requires one other operation as a way to return to top-level tennis.
The 32-year-old three-time Grand Slam winner has solely simply returned to coaching after being out of motion since November as a result of bruising on his pelvic bone.
He capped a exceptional comeback from a hip-resurfacing operation he underwent in January 2019 by successful the European Open in October.
However Murray might have an operation to take away bone development related to the surgical procedure although he could possibly be again in motion on the finish of March in Miami.
The Scot believes his lack of progress is attributable to a standard side-effect of his operation.
“I have not had lots of clarity as to what the issue actually is, because it is difficult to tell,” he instructed the British media.
“What I need to do just now is build up in these next couple of weeks to really test it. Hopefully, it responds fine. I should know by the end of next month whether I’m good to play or not with it.”
An operation would doubtless see him miss Wimbledon and in addition doubtlessly scupper his bid for a 3rd successive Olympics singles title.
Murray has slipped to 130th on the earth after lacking a succession of Grand Slams in recent times.
“I want to play in the Slams again,” he mentioned. “That is the thing that I have missed over these last few years. Missing the Australian Open for me this year was rough.”
He mentioned the operation could be tough for him because of the timing.
“The thing for me that would be tough is if I would have to go ahead and have something done about this,” he mentioned.
“It’s not that lengthy an operation actually when it comes to the rehab and stuff.
“But it surely’s simply if I wasn’t in a position to have it till Could or no matter, with six to eight weeks’ rehab, then that will imply lacking that interval (the grass-court season).”
