Andy Murray Accidentally Over-Shares With Instagram Pic of Hip Surgery

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.

The surgery involves shaving down the end of the femur and coating it in cobalt chromium metal so that it can move smoothly within the hip joint.

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

Murray said on Instagram that he feels โ€œbattered and bruisedโ€ after the surgery, but with time, perhaps his first-round Australian Open exit wonโ€™t be the last match of his professional career.
