Andy Murray pulls out of US Open

Andy Murray Drops Out of US Open, Cites Hip Injury

Tennis' world number two Andy Murray has been forced to pull out from the U.S. Open because of his troublesome hip injury.

The world number two struggled through Wimbledon with the injury, losing in the quarter-finals to Sam Querrey, yet his prospects for Flushing Meadows had looked positive when he travelled to NY last weekend but, after a week of practice, Murray decided the hip was simply too painful.

"Had the issue with the hip over what's actually been since my match with Stan in Paris", Murray, 30, told reporters in a previously scheduled news conference.

"Did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon", Murray said. I obviously spoke to a lot of hip specialists. I miss competing, and I'll try to get myself back on court as soon as I can.

The 2012 US Open champion practised all week but claimed it was too sore for him to win the tournament.

Because Murray's withdrawal occurred before the release of Monday's order of play, under Grand Slam rules, the U.S. Open draw will be adjusted according to the following rule: If the withdrawal is among seeds No. 1 to 4: the fifth seed is moved into the open position; the fifth position shall be filled by the 17th seed; and the 17th position shall be filled by the next-highest ranked player eligible to be seeded.

Murray was asked Saturday about the possibility of shutting down the rest of his season.

Announcing his decision two days before the event, the World No. 2 said "He had hoped to play but rehab has not worked".

"I'll sit down and decide with my team in the next couple of days, for sure".

After consulting the experts, Murray must now plan his next recovery steps but without the worry of a Grand Slam to factor into his decision until next January's Australian Open.

German Philipp Kohlschreiber moves into Querrey's spot and will open against American Tim Smyczek. But this season has been a trying one for him in terms of injuries.

"Don't forget we're not 21 anymore", said Nadal. "That's something that can happen".

"I think that's not possible for a great show". I am 31 and a half nearly. Novak is 30. Andy is 30.
