The three-time grand slam victor has been given a timeline of around seven to eight weeks to hit a ball on the court again, and around 14 weeks for a return to competitive play after this specific kind of surgery.

He pulled out of last year's U.S. Open just after the draw was made and withdrew from this month's Brisbane International after arriving in Australia for the tournament.

Today I underwent successful right hip surgery at the St Vincent Hospital in Melbourne. I'd like to thank Dr John O'... "I look forward to returning to competitive tennis during the grasscourt season", he added.

"Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and support over the last few days".

"I think it [undergoing surgery] is a positive move - he obviously wants to come back", Cowan told Sky Sports News.

James Brokenshire to continue as MP for Old Bexley & Sidcup after surgery
She will now have to find a replacement at a time when she is already carrying out a major re-shaping of her top team. Brokenshire, 50, took to Twitter later in the day to express his appreciation for messages of support.

Roger Federer was forced into a six-month injury lay-off during the second half of the 2016 campaign before he enjoyed a renaissance in form to claim two Grand Slam titles past year but Cowan believes the extended nature of Murray's absence makes his return a tougher task.

Murray, both a Davis Cup champion and Rio Olympic gold medallist, attempted to play at the US Open last summer but was forced to pull out on the eve of the tournament at Flushing Meadows with the hip injury that he picked up during June's French Open semi-final against Stan Wawrinka, though he has had issues with it throughout his career. I'll be more considered in the tournaments I play, even though I play a conservative schedule anyway in comparison to most of the players on the tour. 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.

"I'm very optimistic about the future - the surgeon is very happy about how it went". He felt that my hip will be feeling better than it did a year ago.

"I'm going to take my time to make sure that the rehab is done properly, and make sure that the surgery is as successful as it can be", he said.

The former world number one was previously expected and confirmed to take part in Melbourne for the 2018 Australian Open.

H&M faces backlash over 'monkey in the jungle' hoodie
However, the $10.83 (£7.99 GBP) sweatshirt, is still for sale on H&M's United Kingdom site, although it's not shown on a model. The statement was nearly verbatim from other verbiage contained in what appeared to be the company's marketing manifesto .

"So if I can get myself to 95% of my best, I believe that's enough to compete at the highest level".

He has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon last July.

"The rest of my body feels fantastic".

He concluded: "I'll come back from this".
