Andy Murray has given the thumbs up to his operation and thanked his fans for their support after undergoing surgery on his back injury.
The Scot confirmed last week that he had chosen to go under the knife in an attempt to correct a long-standing problem once and for all. Despite the success of the operation, the world number three is expected to be out of action for the rest of the year, meaning he will miss the end-of-season ATP World Tour finals at London’s 02.
Murray is hoping the surgery will see him come back stronger, with the injury proving problematic for much of the season. It had caused him problems at the Rome Masters in May and returned once again to force him out of the French Open.
His team did work hard to stay on top of the situation since and of course it famously paid off as he won his first Wimbledon title in July, ending Britain’s 77-year wait for a men’s singles winner at SW19, beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the final.
On Monday night, he posted on Twitter: “Thanks for all the well wishes, means a lot to me…” alongside a photo of him lying in a hospital bed with both thumbs up.
“First thing I said when I came round was “did I win?” #somethingsneverchange.”
The 26-year-old also recently played a key role in Great Britain’s return to the elite World Group of the Davis Cup as they stormed to victory in Croatia.
Murray will be hoping to be back in action in time for the Australian Open in January, before returning to Davis Cup duty at the end of the same month in a mouth-watering clash against the United States.
