The former world No.1, who has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon last summer, believes the operation went well and is targeting a return at Queen’s Club in June.
“Today I underwent successful right hip surgery at the St Vincent Hospital in Melbourne,” said Murray, via his Facebook page in a defiant post. “I'd like to thank Dr John O’Donnell and all of the staff for looking after me.
“I look forward to returning to competitive tennis during the grass court season. Thanks to everyone for all the well-wishes and support over the last few days. I'll comeback from this.”
The British No.1 believes he could possibly make his comeback before the grass-court season, however he will only take to the court when fully fit.
In other news, Victoria Azarenka will not be involved at the Australian Open. The two-time champion has withdrawn from the first Grand Slam of the year due to an on-going custody battle over her 11-month-old son.
