Tennis star Andy Murray withdraws from US Open

Andy Murray was also thought to be a major contender before pulling out through injury

World number two and 2012 champion Andy Murray has withdrawn from the US Open, which is due to start in two days time.

Murray has struggled with the injury since Wimbledon, when he lost to Sam Querrey in the quarter finals.

"I spoke to a lot of hip specialists, tried resting, rehabbing, to try to get myself ready", Murray said on his condition, as quoted by the Guardian.

There is a chance that he could follow the footsteps of last year's finalists, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka, who have also made a decision to end their season due to injury.

There is no guarantee, of course, that such a strategy will have a similar effect for other players but it can at least offer Murray encouragement that a lengthy break at this stage of his career can be followed by grand slam success.

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. Murray said he had hoped that his time off this summer-he hadn't played since.

The One Signing Man Utd Must Seal Before Deadline Ends
United have enjoyed a flawless start to the new term, winning three from three, scoring 10 and not conceding in the process. United drew 1-1 last season, having nicked a 1-0 win in 2015-16 and a 2-1 result the season before.

Murray held the number-one world ranking for 41 weeks before being overtaken by Rafa Nadal last week. "I obviously spoke to a lot of hip specialists".

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

Murray was seeded No. 2 at Flushing Meadows, where play begins Monday.

That leaves No. 1 seed Nadal and No. 3 Roger Federer - who has been dealing with a bad back himself - as the two clear favourites for the men's trophy.

"I want to be back on court as soon as I can", he said.

The question now is if Murray will play at all the rest of the season. "Unfortunately, I won't be playing here this year".
