Andy Murray In Good Spirits After Successful Back Surgery

by Tom Gainey | September 24th, 2013, 10:28 am

Andy Murray appears to be in good spirits after undergoing minor back surgery Monday. Post-op, Murray tweeted out the following from his hospital bed.

“First thing I said when I came round was ‘did I win?’ #somethingsneverchange”, he also tweeted.

Murray had the surgery to take care of what has become a bothersome back injury, one that kept him out of the French Open. While the details of the procedure were not released, the 26-year-old is not expected to return this season although he hasn’t officially withdrawn from the ATP Tour World Finals in London.
