Andy Murray has announced that he’s withdrawing from Wimbledon due to a hip injury. Murray wrote on Facebook that he made significant progress over the last ten days, but determined it’s too soon to return to play.

Hey everyone...

It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that I’ll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year.

I’ve made significant progress in practice and matches over the last ten days, but after lengthy discussions with my team, we’ve decided that playing best of five set matches might be a bit too soon in the recovery process. We did everything we could to try to be ready in time.

I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I’m looking forward to the US hardcourt season.

Thanks for all the messages of support and I’m excited to finally be back playing after so long out.
