HUGE Update on Andy Murray, World no.1 all set to fly to New York

HUGE Update on Andy Murray, World no.1 all set to fly to New York

Andy Murray is on track to play in the US Open at the end of August as he steps up his recovery from the injury that has sidelined him since Wimbledon.

His participation in the last grand slam event of the year at Flushing Meadow had looked in doubt when he pulled out of back-to-back Masters 1000 events in Montreal and Cincinnati in the past fortnight. But the Scot is due to travel to New York early next week and barring any last-minute problems he will take his place in the draw, with the tournament set to begin on 28 August.

The Scot has missed the last two ATP events, in Montreal and this week’s Cincinnati Masters,although he has always insisted that skipping them was intended to give him the best chance of lining up in the season’s final grand slam event.

His sore hip saw him limp through to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, where he ran out of steam and lost to American Sam Querrey after leading by two sets to love. It is understood Murray always planned to travel to Flushing Meadows. Announcing his withdrawal from the Cincinnati event, he said: “I’m continuing to work hard on the court with the aim of being in New York.”

It has been reported that Murray, who won his first major title in New York in 2012, has returned to practice but as yet there has been no confirmation from his camp that he will definitely be on court for his first round match.

However, it is not clear whether he has been medically cleared to play in the event after struggling recently with a hip injury.

Former World No 1 Novak Djokovic, defending champion Stan Wawrinka and world No 9 Kei Nishikori have already announced they won’t play in New York.
