Andy Murray went through an operation for the resurfacing of his hip last year. Additionally, this surgery was performed as a result of continuous pain. Besides, this pain threatened to shorten his tennis career.
Murray returned to the court after a long time, since the surgery. And now the former world number one is looking forward to enjoying his time on the court.
However, the Scot had an early exit in the Western and Southern Open. He was defeated by Milos Raonic in the third round of the tournament.
Yet, the three-times Grand Slam winner is far from giving up. In the post-match interview, Murray said, “It is a challenge going out there with the metal hip. It is not that easy. I have learned a lot about myself. So it has still been a good journey.”
“I Can Play, I Can Compete and I Can Win” – Andy Murray
Murray hopes that he has inspired people to not give up and keep going. He said, “Hopefully I have inspired some people with these issues and might have operations, to try to keep going through the situation.”
Additionally, he shared the experiences of people going through the same thing as Andy Murray. “There are a lot of people who told me to stop, which made me want to come back even more. Some things annoyed me a lot”, he said.
Andy Murray also shared about the setback in the month of November. He said, “I was pretty gutted. It was like I am back, I can play. I can compete and I can win. And then I got a setback. And the worst part was I didn’t know whether it would get better or not. Hence it was tough.”
Murray is ranked 134th in the world and will now be competing in the US Open. The tournament will begin on August 31.
