Tennis Star Andy Murray Withdraws From Wimbledon


Earlier in the week, when a BBC reporter asked Murray if his decision "hinges" on being competitive, the former ATP World No. 1 didn't mince words.

31-year-old Murray who has won the grand slam twice shared the news on his Facebook.

"It's with regret I'm withdrawing from Wimbledon", Murray said, having indicated only 24 hours before that he was ready and fit to play, "unless in the next couple of days I wake up and don't feel good".

Unsuccessful in trying to return to competition, Murray opted to have hip surgery in January, and he has played just three matches since returning from the procedure.

"I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I'm looking forward to the United States hardcourt season". Kate, a lifelong tennis fan, often shows her support to Andy Murray and has even watched him play at the men's final. He's reached at least the quarterfinals in each of his past 10 appearances at the All England Club.

"These things are significantly better than what they were a few months ago, that's for sure. But, you know, again, it just takes time".

The first match of his comeback came at the Queen's Club grass-court tournament on June 19.

Two-time victor Murray had been expected to play having given no indication he would pull out despite concerns over his fitness following over a year out with a hip injury.
