Melbourne, Australia — Andy Murray had submitted to an operation at the right hip and hopes to return to the game in time for the Wimbledon tournament.

 

The former world number one, triple champion, Grand Slam champion, has not played a competitive match since his presence in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon last July.

 

Murray has learned that he must consider a recovery period of 14 weeks and is aiming for a return to competition in June.

 

“I underwent with success a surgery to the right hip at the hospital St Vincent de Melbourne, wrote Murray on his page Facebook. I would like to thank Dr. John O’donnell and all the staff I have supported. I am eager to return to competition during the season of tournaments on grass. I’ll get over it. “

 

Murray, 30 years of age, realizes, however, that he will have to reduce her workload on the courts. “I certainly will not play as many tournaments and deploy so much effort to try to reach the first place of the world, Murray said the british media. I’m going to definitely have an approach that is more reflected in the number of tournaments that I’ll play, even if I still rather conservative compared to most of the players of the circuit. “

 

“I’m going to play a limited number of tournaments and concentrate more on trying to win major events and major tournaments rather than trying to achieve some of the objectives in the standings. “

 

Murray added that he may make a return to the game even the ” 95 % of its shape “.

 

“I think it’s good enough to compete at the highest level. “
