After withdrawing from the Brisbane International because of his long-term hip injury, Andy Murray says he may have to consider surgery.
Since July, he has not played and is down to 16th in the world. On Instagram he said, surgery was a “secondary option, something I may have to consider but let’s hope not”.
On 15th January, the Australian Open starts in Melbourne and Murray added he would decide by the weekend whether to stay in Australia or fly home. On Thursday, Murray was due to play American Ryan Harrison and had been given a bye to the last 16 in Brisbane.
The former world number one said: “It’s quite demoralising that when you get on the court it’s not at the level you need it to be to compete at this level. It’s really hurting inside.”
In an earlier statement announcing he would not be playing in Brisbane, three-time Grand Slam champion Murray, who won the event in 2012 and 2013 said: “I’m very disappointed to be withdrawing. I came here with every intention of making a strong start to the year.”
In July, his defence of the Wimbledon singles title ended in a five-set defeat by Sam Querrey and he has not played competitively. In August, he made an unsuccessful attempt to return at the US Open.
In November, his only public on-court appearances was in exhibitions against Roger Federer in and on Friday against Roberto Bautista Agut in Abu Dhabi. Recently, he said, “I just want to enjoy playing again. I’ve really missed it the last six months or so.’’
