The US Open Hasn't Been This Exciting in a Long Time

The US Open Hasn't Been This Exciting in a Long Time

Murray - who has been struggling with the injury since before Wimbledon - announced the decision on Saturday, just two days before the tournament begins.

Serena Williams, who is pregnant with her first child, hasn't played a tournament since winning the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year.

Nadal, back on top of the world rankings for the first time in three years, is a two-time victor in NY, his 2010 and 2013 titles forming part of his 15-Slam portfolio which was embellished by a record 10th French Open in June. On media day, he made his announcement to the press citing the hip injury that has been bothering him since the French Open.

Tennis superstar Andy Murray has withdrawn from the U.S. Open with a hip injury, according to Stuart Fraser of the Times.

One of the most impressive round-one wins so far has come from eighteen-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who dominated an in-form Daniil Medvedev yesterday, winning 7-5, 6-1, 6-2.

Murray has been an ever present figure in slams and only missed his last big tournament four years ago at Roland Garros.


"I prefer to play against another player, an easier one if it's possible", said the Spaniard, who has not got past the fourth round since 2013 and starts his campaign against Serbian Dusan Lajovic. I obviously spoke to a lot of hip specialists.

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. It was more a question of whether, you know, it would settle down in time. Obviously there has been a lot of players with injuries this year.

"I don't think the tour is doing much wrong, to be quite honest", he said of the ATP schedule, which runs from January to November.

"I have been playing sets the last few days and I'm really happy how I'm feeling. few days out of the first round here now", he said.

He explained: "If I get myself fit and healthy, there is no reason why I can't". "I've been practicing here and competitive in practice when I'm not moving close to how I can when I'm healthy".

As a result of the withdrawal, fifth-seeded Marin Cilic moves into Murray's position, while American Sam Querrey moves into the fifth seed, per Ashley Marshall of the U.S. Open website. And the main draw will be joined by Lukas Lacko, previously he lost in the qualifying rounds.
