Andy Murray insists his playing days are not finished yet and hopes to be back on the court within two months.

After his surgery in Melbourne on Monday -- under Dr. John O'Donnell -- former world No. 1 Murray posted a picture of his recovery on social media, with coach Jamie Delgado by his side.

"I'm feeling really positive and looking forward to starting rehab. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and support the last few days. It really helps."

The British No. 1 stated he has been competitive despite his injury and spoke of his aim to return to the top post-surgery.

"Hopefully I'll be hitting balls on the court after seven or eight weeks," he told the Guardian. "It's not like I'm going to not hit a tennis ball for eight months and then practise for two months and then start playing again.

"I've been fairly competitive with top 50 players in the world in Brisbane, when I've been struggling to move and I made the quarterfinals at Wimbledon when I literally couldn't walk. So, if I can get myself to 95 percent of my best, I believe that's enough to compete at the highest level. No question."

He added: "The reason for having it done was to allow me to get back competing and play tennis. That's what I want to keep doing and I'm not finished playing tennis yet."
