Andy Murray announced today that he is recovering from a hip resurfacing, which will hopefully relieve the chronic hip pain that is forcing him into a sad, untimely retirement.

Doubles star Bob Bryan underwent the procedure last August and, this month, was back in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.
