Australian open mens final

1st set Novak 6-3

And Nadal only took one single point off Djoko's service games the whole set.

I'm thinking it'll be closer from now on ..

Andy Murray: Former British number one has resurfacing surgery on hip

Former British number one Andy Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery in London on Monday. The three-time Grand Slam champion announced in January he would retire this year, preferably after Wimbledon. But he admitted the Australian Open could be the final tournament of his career, where he lost to Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round.

"I now have a metal hip," Murray, 31, said in a post on Instagram following his surgery. "Feeling a bit battered and bruised just now but hopefully that will be the end of my hip pain."

I hadn't heard of this resurfacing procedure .. rather than a full metal hip replacement.
Here's hoping he gets pain free soon and back to playing   🙂
