Tennis season looks over for Andy Murray

Tennis season looks over for Andy Murray”

Andy Murray does not expect to return to the court again in a competitive event this season due to an ongoing hip complaint.

The three-time grand slam champion has not played since crashing out of Wimbledon in July, missing a series of events including the US Open, to cure his latest fitness issue.

The 30-year-old three-time major victor is struggling with a hip injury and says an extended period of rest will be the most effective way to combat the problem.

But after testing out his hip during a week of training at Flushing Meadows, he conceded defeat and withdrew from the competition after the draw had been made.

Murray, 30, has endured a hard year which has been brought into sharper focus when compared to how he ended the 2016 campaign. Just wanted to update you all on my injury and the rest of my season.

Former World No.1. Andy Murray on Wednesday stated on his Facebook page that his hip injury has not healed completely and he would be resting for the rest of the season in a bid to mount a strong challenge at the 2018 Australian Open.

It nearly certainly means he is out of the season-ending final - the ATP World Tour Finals - in London in November.

"Although this has been a frustrating year on court for many reasons, I'm confident after this extended period of rest and rehabilitation that I will be able to reach my best level again and be competing for Grand Slam titles next season", Murray added.

Murray, who is Britain's most successful tennis player in the open era, says he will begin his 2018 season in Brisbane in preparation for the Australian Open in January.

Murray replaced Djokovic as world number one in November 2016 and held the top spot for 41 weeks before being replaced by Nadal last month.

In a statement on his Facebook page Murray thanked his team and his fans for their support over what have been a hard last few months.
