Murray is dealing with a side effect from a recent hip resurfacing and it might require him to undergo a surgery -- again."I have not had lots of clarity as to what the issue actually is, because it is difficult to tell," Murray told the BBC, referring to the discomfort he has been subject to during his comeback from a bruised pelvic bone. The injury has kept him out of action since he won his first -- and only -- Davis Cup match in Madrid in November. If he opts for surgery, it could keep him out of Wimbledon as well as the Olympic Games.
Murray, now 32 and the defending Olympic gold medalist for the upcoming Tokyo games, had targeted the upcoming Miami Open (it begins on March 25) as his comeback event. The former world No. 1 and two-time Wimbledon champ missed the Australian Open due to the pelvic injury. He has won just one tournament since 2017, last October's Antwerp Open. His ranking has plummeted to No. 130.
