Andy Murray out of US Open due to hip injury

Andy Murray out of US Open due to hip injury

The world No.2 struggled through Wimbledon with the problem, losing in the quarter-finals to Sam Querrey, but his prospects for Flushing Meadows had looked positive when he travelled to NY last weekend.

Andy Murray has announced he has pulled out of the US Open due to his hip injury.

As a result of the withdrawal, fifth-seeded Marin Cilic moves into Murray's position, while American Sam Querrey moves into the fifth seed, per Ashley Marshall of the U.S. Open website.

"I did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon", he said. Obviously, when you speak to a lot, there are different views and opinions on what the best thing to do is moving forward, and that's a decision I'll need to take now. Tried resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here.

The way he looked during a practice session earlier Saturday, it was clear Andy Murray was far from fit and hale enough to make a run at the US Open.

President Donald Trump attacks Tennessee Senator Bob Corker in tweet
The president needs to take stock of the role he plays in our nation and move beyond himself - move way beyond himself. He's the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and was once considered to be Trump's secretary of state.

Wawrinka, Djokovic and Nishikori have followed the example of Roger Federer, who took the final six months of last season off to fully recover from knee surgery and has reaped the benefits this year.

On the women's side, Serena Williams is absent because of her pregnancy, and Victoria Azarenka withdrew because of a child custody matter. If it means that I can play before the end of the year, then that's what I would love to do. He has not returned to the semifinals in NY since claiming the first major of his career there back in 2012.

Murray said the hip had been bothering him since before Wimbledon, but had been working to get back into proper playing shape.

The No. 2 seed was scheduled to play Tennys Sandgren in the first round.

"I'll definitely make a decision on that in the next few days", Murray said. Under Grand Slam rules, the man seeded 17th - in this case Querrey - moves to Cilic's vacated spot and will play Gilles Simon of France.
