The 2017 season is officially ended for Andy Murray. The World No. 3 withdrew from the last Masters 1000 Event of the season, Paris Bercy, that will take place from 30 October to 5 November, due to hip injury that has been influencing him since Wimbledon.

Murray will leave top 10 as he won't defend Vienna and ATP Finals titles as well. On November 20 he will be around the 13-14th position having 2,790 points. The good news is that he is back to practice at the All England Club after spending more than one month resting and doing rehab in order to get his hip injury healed.

He was seen hitting balls from people who were there, of course he didn't have any intense training session, but he wants to be as competitive as possible to face Roger Federer on Tuesday November 7 at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow for the exhibition match 'Andy Murray Live'.

13,000 people are expected to attend the event, and Murray doesn't want to miss it. The three-time Grand Slam champion is expected to play his first official event since Wimbledon in Brisbane, Australia, that starts on December 31.

Andy, who visited more than a half dozen specialists, is trying to get to his best shape without undergoing surgery, which would take a six-month break. ALSO READ: Roger Federer: 'Post Fab Four Tennis will be different but not worse' .
