"I need an endpoint,"
Murray had to suffer for years to hip problems. This is accentuated after a semi-final in 2017 in Paris, he lost to Stan Wawrinka in five sets. "Since about twenty months I torture myself with pain," he says. "I've done everything I could do to improve the hip. Although, I'm more than six months ago, but the pain is still there." Since the aforementioned defeat against Wawrinka, Murray has played in only nine tournaments, at the moment he is still ranked 230 in the world rankings.
a year Ago, the father of two girls had operated on the right hip in Melbourne, the pain remained. "I can't play – but at a level that satisfies me. The pain is too strong, also in the Training and during the games. So I don't want to make more, so it makes no Fun. That is why I said in the autumn to my Team: I need an end point."

hip is also affected in everyday life
Actually, he had hoped that he would be able to 2019 to Wimbledon by playing, "but I'm not sure that I'm doing with this pain for another three, four months". The hip is affected him not only in sports but also in everyday life: It would be nice if he could just tighten again pain-free socks or shoes, the 45-times tournament winner, was 41 weeks, and the number 1.
it is Likely that he will become a second, more complicated surgery, Murray said. "But to make a Comeback after that would not be realistic. It was more important for me, to make everyday life a little more bearable." The hip and the pain was the dominant theme, of all he addressed to it, and make the situation worse, he says. Also psychological help is not brought him nothing: "The pain will go away." (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
