Andy Murray is lined up to have surgery on a persistent back issue that will keep him out of action for the rest of 2013. The timing is great, as these things go, since he'll miss little of note besides the ATP World Tour Finals.

It also worked out well with the release of two video games to feed his well-documented gaming habit:

PES 2014 is Konami's competitor to the FIFA soccer video game franchise. Grand Theft Auto V is the latest installment in the infamous open world action game series. Both were released this week.

CELEB SIGHTINGS!

Check out shots of Kim Sears and other celebs who turned out in force for the Wimbledon final.

Will this present relationship problems for Murray? Murray's affinity for video games has been the subject of rumor for years, and tabloid reports in late 2009 suggested that longtime girlfriend Kim Sears had broken up with the Wimbledon champion over the incessant habit.

Whatever the truth there, Sears and Murray continue to date today. Either way, Andy, don't forget to take her to dinner and stuff.

PES 2014 and GTA V weren't the only two games Murray tried to get his hands on either:

The two stopped in to BBC Two's Mock the Week recently and were the subject of a hilarious segment called "Unlikely Things For Andy Murray To Think." And yes, that's a Farming Simulator reference at the 2:40 mark:

We look forward to a healthy Andy Murray at the Australian Open in late January.
