Andy Murray: I’ve won a title with a metal hip and that is very cool

Andy Murray

Andy Murray says that his Queen’s doubles title is one of the most special of his career, as it was completely unexpected.

Murray and partner Feliciano Lopez went all the way in the tournament, despite the Scot admitting it was just originally planned as little more than a stress-test for his surgically repaired hip.

He underwent hip-resurfacing surgery in January, a procedure that involves coating the hip joint in metal.

“I’ve won with a metal hip. It is mental really,” the 32-year-old said after his Queen’s success.

“This is very different for me and it’s more special than a lot of the singles tournaments that I have won for a lot of different reasons.

“It’s a cool thing to be able to have done, because of where I was a few months ago.

“Even as far as just two months ago, I just wasn’t thinking about this. It was not something that I was driven to get back to, playing here.

“I was just really, really happy just to be pain-free and enjoying life, literally just doing normal things. So it’s really special.”
