British No 1 Andy Murray has dropped outside the ATP top 20 for the first time in 10 years as he continues his road to recovery following his recent hip surgery.
Murray, who underwent hip surgery in Melbourne after pulling out of the Australian Open, has dropped outside the top 20 for the first time since April 2008.
The 30-year-old has not played a competitive match since he was knocked out of Wimbledon in July, but is already on the road to recovery after starting his rehabilitation and hopes to be back playing again in time for the grass-court season.
