Former world No. 1 Andy Murray reveals his hip is pain-free but still it is not all ideal as he is still going through the recovery process nine months after a hip resurfacing surgery. The 32-year-old, who made a winning return to tennis in June after winning the Queen's doubles title alongside Feliciano Lopez, played five doubles tournaments before making his singles comeback at the Cincinnati Masters.
The three-time Grand Slam has played three singles tournaments since making a comeback but is now set for a busy schedule as he is due to play for four weeks in a row, starting in Zhuhai. "I have no pain in my hip anymore, so that's a positive thing.
But I'm still kind of going through the recovery process now from the operation. My muscles are still recovering, the ones that were cut during the procedure. So I sometimes feel a little bit slow on the court," Murray said, per Reem Abulleil.
Murray, now ranked at No. 413 in the world, has been drawn to meet 2018 Australian Open quarterfinalist Tennys Sandgren in the Zhuhai first round.
