Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray underwent surgery on his right hip Monday in Australia and is targeting a return to action for Wimbledon in June.
“I’m very optimistic,” Murray told The Independent’s Paul Newman. “If I can get myself to 95 percent of my best I believe that’s enough to compete at the highest level.”
Murray withdrew from the Australian Open last week due to the hip issue that has sidelined him since last year’s Wimbledon.
“Moving forward, in terms of my approach to my career, I’m certainly not going to be putting in the same amount of tournaments and effort to try to get to No. 1 in the world,” the 30-year-old Murray said.
