Hip injury

Injury derailed Murray's career

The former world number one men's tennis player underwent surgery on his right hip last year.

Since then, Murray has managed to play just 14 matches after making a return in June.

He had to withdraw from the China Open in September.

Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut defeated the three-time Grand Slam winner in a physically challenging five-setter match.

Murray did manage to equalize after being down for two sets, but could not clinch victory in the end.

Agut won the match 4-6, 4-6, 7-6, 7-6, 2-6.
