If you are an Andy Murray fan, there is bad news for you. You are not going to see your favourite player play any more matches this season. The Scot is set to go through back surgery which will rule him out of action for a few months.
This back problem is not new for Murray. He has been suffering from this problem since the last one and half years. He had to withdraw his name from this year’s French Open because of the same problem.
Murray managed to regain 100% fitness after the French Open though and ended up participating in the last two Grand Slams of the year i.e. Wimbledon and US Open but, while, playing for Great Britain in the Davis Cup clash against Croatia a few days back, that problem started to trouble him again because of which he decided to meet a specialist who suggested him to opt for surgery.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, the Spokesperson of Murray said, “Andy was comfortable with his back while playing on grass courts, but, after making some appearances on clay and hard courts off late, he started to feel the pain again. He went to the specialist who told him that the surgery would solve the issue permanently. Hopefully, the operation will go smoothly and he will be back 100% fit for the new season.”
Despite having that back problem, Murray had featured in 3 matches in the Davis Cup tie against Croatia and had won all of them to help his team win the tie and make it to the World Group.
Murray had to take part in 5 more tournaments this season including the Paris Masters and the ATP World Tour finals which will be played in London in November.
