Tennis Injury Plaguing U.S. Open
Tennis injury plaguing U.S. Open.
Andy Murray becomes the fifth player in the top 11 to withdraw from the U.S. Open with a tennis injury. Being seeded 2nd at Flushing Meadows, Murray will not participate in the tournament due to a hip injury. With Murray, Novak Djokovic (right elbow), Stan Wawrinka (left knee), Kei Nishikori (right wrist), and Milo’s Raonic (Left Wrist) not included in this year’s U.S. Open, players like Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will try to continue their grand slam dominance this year.
Having dealt with this tennis injury for years, this is the first time Andy Murray will withdraw from the U.S. Open. “Did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon. I obviously spoke to a lot of hip specialists. Tried obviously resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here,” said Murray, who won the 2012 U.S. Open.
“Obviously there has been a lot of players with injuries this year,” Murray said. “Look, I want to be back on court as soon as I can. If it means that I can play before the end of the year, then that’s what I would love to do. I miss competing, and I’ll try to get myself back on court as soon as I can.”
