BREAKING : Andy Murray pulls out of Grand Slam event for the first time in 4 years

BREAKING : Andy Murray pulls out of Grand Slam event for the first time in 4 years

Andy Murray shocked the US Open on Saturday night by withdrawing from the tournament due to his continuing hip problem.

The 2012 champion and now world No2 made the announcement following a practice session with Frenchman Lucas Pouille overseen by head coach Ivan Lendl.

Murray explained that his attempts at rehab had failed to get him ready for two weeks combat at Flushing Meadows, and that he was withdrawing immediately.

It will be the first Grand Slam that he has missed since the 2013 French Open.

In a brief media conference he added that he would make a decision ‘over the next few days’ about whether to shut down his season altogether, but insisted that this was not inevitable.

‘I want to come back as soon as I can,’ he said. ‘I miss competing and playing. I did all that I could to be fit.’

Murray has not played since losing in the Wimbledon quarter final when he was clearly hampered by a hip issue, and joins Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic on the absentee list.
