The 31-year-old shared a clip on his Instagram Story of him playing golf accompanied by the message: "Played my first round of gold for 6 years yesterday...pain free. Hip resurfacing = (thumbs up)"

His last appearance came at the Australian Open, losing to Roberto Bautista
Agut in a gruelling five-set match in the first round, but has said since his
surgery that he would love to be able to play at Wimbledon in July.
