London | Murray out for rest of season

Andy Murray has announced that he is ending his 2017 season because of the hip injury which prevented him from competing at the US Open and reveals he will be making his comeback at the Brisbane event next January in preparation for the Australian Open.

Let’s hope it’s not too serious and he doesn’t need surgery for it because it would be great to have Andy Murray back, especially with what he’s done in his career and how well he’s played over the last few years. Greg Rusedski

However, he will be playing in Glasgow this year against Roger Federer for UNICEF UK and Sunny-sid3up.

This is what he said on Facebook

 

Just wanted to update you all on my injury and the rest of my season.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to compete in the upcoming events in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely, the final two events to finish the season in Vienna and Paris due to my hip injury which has been bothering me the last few months.

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.

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.

I will be beginning my 2018 season in Brisbane in preparation for the Australian Open and I’m look forward playing in Glasgow later this year against Roger for UNICEF UK and Sunny-sid3up.

I have a fantastic team working alongside me to help me through this process and appreciate the support from them and all of my fans over this difficult period.

 

Meanwhile former British number one Greg Rusedski, speaking on Eurosport, believes Andy Murray is right to be cautious about undergoing hip surgery recollecting surgery basically ended his career.

He said: “I had a little tear in my labrum near the end of my career and the doctor told me, ‘Take six weeks off and hopefully it’ll get better and everything will get stable’. For me, unfortunately, it didn’t get as stable as I would have liked because my back would pop out but now everything’s fine – so the more time you take out, the better you recover.

“They said to me if you have surgery there’s a 50 per cent chance it’ll get better, 45 per cent chance it could stay the same and five per cent chance it could get worse, so I think he’s doing the right thing taking the rest of the season off.

“He says he might come back for Paris or the end of season championships but I don’t see that happening, I see him taking the rest of the season off and starting next year and getting ready.”

He added: “Let’s hope it’s not too serious and he doesn’t need surgery for it because it would be great to have Andy Murray back, especially with what he’s done in his career and how well he’s played over the last few years.

“Federer was out of the top 16 seeds when he started the Australian Open this year so I wouldn’t worry about where the seeding is. If Murray is healthy, he will get back to the top of men’s tennis.”
