‘Surgery not end of world for Murray’

LONDON: Former men’s tennis world number one Andy Murray can be encouraged by the examples of Lleyton Hewitt and Milos Raonic, who both returned from hip surgery, according to his former coach Miles Maclagan.

The 30-year-old two-time Wimbledon champion withdrew from the tournament in Brisbane on Tuesday and raised the prospect he may require surgery on the hip that has kept him off the ATP circuit — apart from a one set loss last week in an exhibition in Abu Dhabi — since losing at Wimbledon last June.

Maclagan said the upside was he wasn’t feeling like this after surgery.“It’s concerning because the first option hasn’t worked out, which was a lot of rehab,” Maclagan told the BBC.“I know he’s put as much into it as he possibly could.“There have been big advancements in medicine and there are guys like Lleyton Hewitt and Milos Raonic who had this sort of surgery and came back to a good level.”
