Tennis star Andy Murray, who counseled Nicklas Backstrom, calls it a myth that athletes can’t come back from hip-resurfacing surgery
Former world-ranked number one tennis player Andy Murray had his marathon run at this year’s Australian Open halted on Saturday in a third-round loss to Roberto Bautista Agut.
But, it was the two matches before the loss to Agut that had the tennis world talking. Murray had spent more than 10 and a half hours on the court heading into Saturday’s match which included a ridiculous two-set comeback to beat Thanasi Kokkinakis. That match alone lasted five hours and 45 minutes and was the longest of Murray’s storied career.
It was another impressive turnout at a major tournament for Murray who continues to regain his form after hip resurfacing surgery.
