Andy Murray: one bad scan could mean the end

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray admits the last few years haven't been easy for him. Murray underwent his first hip surgery in 2027, before undergoing a hip resurfacing surgery in January 2019. The Briton returned to competitive action six months later at the Queen's Club and played doubles for two months before he returned to singles action.

Murray showed promising signs in his comeback as he won it all in his last ATP tournament of the 2019 season in Antwerp. After playing only one match at the inaugural Davis Cup Finals, the 32-year-old sat out the rest of the event due to a pelvic issue.

Murray hoped he would be ready for the start of the 2020 season but unfortunately that wasn't the case. The Briton was aiming to potentially start his season at the Miami Masters but the tournament got called off due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"When you are not getting better after four or five weeks of rest, you're being told: 'This could be what happened, we need to investigate this further.' When you are told you start obviously thinking the worst and if that's the case then it's obviously career-ending," Murray told Amazon Prime Video Sport.

" "It's been difficult, the emotional ups and downs of just not knowing what's going on and then being given potential worst case scenarios and thinking this might be it. And then you are going into scans thinking, if you get the wrong news from this, that it's done.

"So, it's been hard from that respect but thankfully that's all been really good and, like I said, I have been practicing on these courts the last 10 days or so and been feeling quite well. Practiced two, two-and-a-hours some days and it's been responding well."
