Will Novak find it in his heart to award Andy with an AO for his pigeonism in early-to-mid 2010s?
Andy himself was doubtful about playing singles again but he says his surgeon advised him to try.Anyone else think we don’t know the full story on his surgery? He seems to be quickly getting back to his best. The hip resurfacing was not supposed to last up to singles play
Exactly!I know he loves tennis, but you have to wonder if risking his new hip is worth it all. He's not fighting for GOAT position like the Big 3, where the reward is probably worth the risk. He's set for life as Britain's Greatest player, and will get all the perks and cushy jobs and opportunities in retirement that come with that.
But the way he used to talk about his hip
problems before the surgery made day to day living sound awful. Constantly in pain. Couldn't play with his kids or even walk his dog for any length of time. Why would you risk a return to that kind of existance if you don't really have to. Hope for his sake the new hip is built to last.
Still, good on him for working his way back and winning a title. I don't see another slam in his future, but stranger things have happened. The guy knows how to grind.
