Possible new setback once again for Andy Murray. According to British media, the 30-year-old is still not at his best after the hip injury he had in January. In the last two weeks, Murray did less or nothing on the tennis court as he is said to feel pain in the hip again.
Murray was trying to come back at the Loughborough Challenger that starts on May 21, but he now seems unlikely to do it. And most importantly, his appearances at the 's-Hertogenbosch and Queen's ATP events are in doubt.
Playing Wimbledon, at the best of five sets match, would be a big risk, and he won't be there if he doesn't play at least one event before. 'I will come back only when I am at 100 per cent', he had said a few months ago.
Right now, he isn't. Murray's compatriot, Johanna Konta, was obviously sad to learn about this news: ‘I still hope he can [make it to Wimbledon]. Obviously, he needs to do what’s best for the longevity of his career.
I mean, I can really just feel for him. I can’t imagine how sad he must be to be away from the game which he obviously loves so much. He must be doing everything that he can to come back fitter and stronger and be playing for a long time so if he’s not around through that period he will be sorely missed.
Hopefully, he gets better soon.’ ALSO READ: Roger Federer and Marin Cilic's unlikely post-marriage parallel
