Murray DESISTE de Brisbane, pondera operação e pode não jogar Australian Open

Andy Murray, antigo número um mundial, anunciou esta terça-feira a sua desistência do ATP 250 de Brisbane, onde ia regressar oficialmente à competição após seis meses de ausência, e admitiu a possibilidade de ter de se submeter a uma operação à anca direita em breve, colocando naturalmente em risco os próximos meses. A decisão em relação ao Australian Open será tomada nos próximos dias.

“Fui aconselhado a tratar de forma cautelosa da minha anca e tenho feito os possíveis para voltar a competir. Treinei com alguns jogadores de topo em Brisbane e infelizmente as coisas não correram como eu queria. A operação é outra das opções, mas as chances de que o resultado seja bom não são assim tão grandes quanto isso, pelo que essa se mantém como uma opção alternativa”, confessou num longo post no Instagram, acompanhado de uma foto sua de quando era… bem mais jovem.

Hey everyone.. Just wanted to write a little message on here for anyone interested in what in going through right now. Firstly I want to apologise to @brisbanetennis for withdrawing at late notice and to everyone who wanted to come along to watch me play(or lose😇) The organisers couldn’t have been more understanding and supportive and I’ll always remember that. Thank you. I’ve obviously been going through a really difficult period with my hip for a long time and have sought council from a number of hip specialists. Having been recommended to treat my hip conservatively since the US Open I have done everything asked of me from a rehab perspective and worked extremely hard to try get back on the court competing. Having played practice sets here in Brisbane with some top players unfortunately this hasn’t worked yet to get me to the level I would like so I have to reassess my options. Obviously continuing rehab is one option and giving my hip more time to recover. Surgery is also an option but the chances of a successful outcome are not as I high as I would like which has made this my secondary option and my hope has been to avoid that. However this is something I may have to consider but let’s hope not. I choose this pic as the little kid inside me just wants to play tennis and Compete.. I genuinely miss it so much and i would give anything to be back out there. I didn’t realise until these last few months just how much I love this game. Everytime I wake up from sleeping or napping i hope that it’s better and it’s quite demoralising when you get on the court it’s not at the level you need it to be to compete at this level. In the short term I’m going to be staying in Australia for the next couple of days to see if my hip settles down a bit and will decide by the weekend whether to stay out here or fly home to assess what I do next. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to keep everyone in the loop and get this off my chest as it’s really hurting inside. Hope to see you back on the court soon 🎾😢❤️
