EXCLUSIVE – Andy Murray lifts cover on the hip damage hazard they faces as a result of tennis return

Andy Murray has conceded that their arrival to tennis methods they is probably going to must have a full hip substitution a couple of years sooner than if they had remained in retirement.

Andy Murray should have in any event one full hip substitution – and their tennis swansong could present the medical procedure by years.

The world No 1 was completely mindful that the reemerging they experienced in January was probably going to last their just into his fifties.

At that point he would require a full substitution as the reemerging strategy must be performed once.

“There is always a risk in sport,” Murray said. “The prosthesis that I have in there they say should last 20 or so years – then I would have a full hip replacement. You can’t resurface your hip twice.”

“The risk in playing is that it lasts less time than it would otherwise and I would need a hip replacement sooner.”

“And with playing sport at a high level, that risk is higher. It might mean the operation or the prosthesis won’t last as long. That is why doctors and stuff are cautious.”

“For surgeons and doctors, they don’t want to be the person who says, ‘Go back and do this, absolutely you’ll be fine’, then have it break after two years and there needs to be a full hip replacement.”

At first, Murray was glad to hang up his racket and just appreciate a torment free life in the wake of experiencing the system.

In any case, after the achievement of the activity, his specialist Sarah Muirhead-Allwood was among those convincing him to give top-level tennis one last go – partially in light of the fact that surgeons needed to see exactly how strong the moderately new treatment can be.

They trust it could be the passage to comparable activities on other driving sportsmen.

“The lady who operated on me at the beginning said, ‘You can try, but don’t have such high expectations’,” Murray reviewed.

“Then at some stage during the rehab I said, ‘You know what? I feel great. I have no pain in my hip and I am happy. I don’t need to play tennis”.

“Then it was her who started saying, ‘Oh no, you should give it a go!”

“Doctors need to gain confidence in the operation. I am hoping with me doing what I am doing maybe it will make people think they, too, can have the operation.”

Murray has had bunches of empowering messages from individuals who have had dynamic existences after a full hip substitution so they is certain the technique won’t be life-restricting at whatever point it occurs.

There is even a line of reasoning that by proceeding in the way of life of a top competitor and working his body hard, the reemerging procedure may even last more.

“With the prosthesis, if you have a strong bone around it, it can make it better,” Murray said. “If you don’t exercise and your bones become weak, there is a way of thinking where it becomes weaker quicker. There is a balance.”

“There is even a possibility it could last longer.”

There is absolutely no reprieve for Murray right now. Following his exhausting two hour, 42 moment three-set annihilation to Alex de Minaur in Zhuhai on Thursday they moves onto Beijing with the ATP 1000 occasion in Shanghai the week after.

“I have no pain in my hip after playing two-and-a-half hours, so it’s clear I can still compete at a high level,” they said.

“I have put my body through a lot over the years, but with what has happened the last couple of years, I still want to work hard and train hard.”

“I am just allowing myself a bit more time to rest and relax.”

“When I am training and practising I will still give my best effort, but I want to give my body a bit more time to recover. I did not really think of doing that earlier my career.”
