British professional tennis player,Andy Murray holding Britain’s world No. 2 in men’s singles will “most likely” miss the rest of the season due to a hip injury that kept him out of the U.S. Open, he announced on Wednesday.
The Scottish, who sustained the injury at the French Open in June, said he would begin his 2018 season in Brisbane in preparation for the Australian Open and would feature later this year in Glasgow against Roger Federer for a charity event.
“Having consulted with a number of leading hip specialists over the last week, along with my own team, we have decided that this is the best decision for my long-term future,” Murray wrote on Facebook.
Murray spent the six weeks since his quarter-final exit to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon looking to regain fitness in time for the US Open.
