Andy Murray pulls out of US Open 2017

Andy Murray Drops Out of US Open, Cites Hip Injury

Last month at Wimbledon, Andy said he had the hip problem most of the time of his career and he had dealt with it but the problem becomes more severe during the semi-final which is the loss to Wawrinka at the French Open in June. Hopes were raised for British fans when Murray flew out to NY early to practice.

"The guys who are hurt lately, it's mostly because they are 30-plus", 36-year-old Federer said.

He has been reluctant to go into detail about the injury, saying at Wimbledon it was something that had affected him on and off for a number of years but never to the extent of this summer's flare-up.

He explained: "If I get myself fit and healthy, there is no reason why I can't". It was more a question of whether, you know, it would settle down in time.

Tennis superstar Andy Murray has withdrawn from the U.S. Open with a hip injury, according to Stuart Fraser of the Times.

"I spoke to a number of specialists about it to get the best advice possible. 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. "That's something I'll sit down and decide with my team". Murray's announcement leaves just four previous Grand Slam champions in the draw; Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Juan Martin del Potro and Marin Cilic.

Murray, the second-ranked men's player in the world, joins No. 4 Stan Wawrinka, No. 5 Novak Djokovic, No. 10 Kei Nishikori and No. 11 Milos Raonic, all of whom are also out of the final Grand Slam tournament of the season due to injury. Fans are, apparently, ready for a wide-open men's field, knowing that each round will bring suspense, something sorely lacking in the previous two Grand Slams where Nadal's tenth title at the French Open and Federer's eighth at Wimbledon were all but foregone conclusions. I have been practicing here and competitive in practice when I'm not moving close to how I can when I'm healthy.

Should Murray decide not to play for the rest of the year, his ranking is likely to slide to around 16th. The Swiss won in NY for five years in a row between 2004 and 2008, beating Murray the last time, but has not lifted the trophy since.

"I want to be back on court as soon as I can. So unfortunately I won't be playing here this year", a clearly dejected Murray told a news conference.

"But obviously I'll need to make the correct decision and really think it through these next couple of days with my team".
