Andy Murray Drops Out of US Open, Cites Hip Injury

A look at Andy Murray┬┤s possible route to the US Open final

Andy Murray on Saturday pulled out of the US Open tournament after failing to recover from his hip injury.

It is the first time since the French Open in 2013 that Murray has withdrawn from a Grand Slam tournament. Murray did travel to NY but, after a week of practice, he decided he was not fit enough to do himself justice.

He has not played a match since July 12 at Wimbledon, where he was the defending champion and clearly was hampered by his hip during a five-set quarterfinal loss to Sam Querrey.

Murray's exit from the U.S. Open is the latest in a lengthy list by top men who are missing the event because they are hurt. But this season has been a trying one for him in terms of injuries. Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka, the defending US Open champion, are also absent at Flushing Meadows because of elbow and knee injuries, respectively, and will not return to the tour until next season. The extended break has helped Federer redeem his career, with victories in two out of the three majors in 2017. I want to be back on court as soon as I can.

"I tried obviously resting, rehabbing to try and get myself ready here", Murray told a news conference.

"If I get myself fit and healthy, there is no reason why I can't (come back at the same level)". If it means that I can play before the end of the year, then that's what I would love to do.

The 2017 US Open gets underway on August 28.

The 26-year-old has already made two grand slam semi-finals, handling the pressure of expectation at her home tournament at Wimbledon last month superbly before losing to Venus Williams in the last four.
