Andy Murray's chances

"The unique nature of Murray’s situation comes with uncertainty," Avakian wrote. "He says he feels 'zero pain in the hip' and surgeon Sarah Muirhead-Allwood is happy with the progress. But no person has had to play a five-hour, five-set singles match with a metal hip in extreme heat, let alone multiple matches.

"This is the uncharted territory Murray could find himself in come January, when the Australian Open takes place in Melbourne, 12 months after the world of tennis announced his premature farewell at the very same event.

"Then again, if there’s no pain to hold him back and his artificial hip proves to be immune to the violence modern tennis bestows upon the body, why shouldn’t Murray be able to reach an even higher level than ever? Perhaps the sky is the limit, not the hip."
