Andy Murray is a British tennis star. He plays at the Australian Open. This can be his last tournament. He is injured. He must have surgery.

He has the surgery. Doctors put a piece of metal inside his pelvis. He hopes to get better. He wants to play at Wimbledon. He wants to stop playing at age 31.

Difficult words: tournament (a series of tennis games), surgery (an operation; when doctors put something into your body or change your body), pelvis (a big bone below your belly and above where your legs start).
