In an interview as quoted by Metro, Andy Murray revealed he has been dealing with issues in airports due to his metal hip when going for security controls before flying on board. "I have taken two flights since the operation.
It went off both times", said Murray. "I didn’t actually think about it before because I don’t really remember that it’s in there now. I went through, it went off and I was like, “Oh for God’s sake”.
And then when I got through, my wife was like, “You know that’s because of your hip”. I was like, “Oh f*ck, of course”. Bob Bryan was telling me that you can get a medical certificate but I’m not going to walk around with that to say that I have got a metal hip and show that’s why I am setting the detector off."
"That decision was made in December when I was training that I couldn’t play competitive tennis anymore. When I spoke to my team then, I was like, “I’m going to stop, I need to stop because I can’t keep doing this.
Doing practice sets like that, I couldn’t serve properly, I couldn’t run properly. I knew I couldn’t play anymore so we discussed stopping. Then after speaking to Bob Bryan, I decided to go ahead and have the operation and then just wait and see what happens."
