Andy Murray has withdrawn from Wimbledon. The British player announced that he won't play The Championships as he is not ready to go on the long distance yet, despite he played at a good level both at Queen's and Eastbourne.
'It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that I’ll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year', Murray wrote on Facebook. '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.' At the moment his next tournament is the Citi Open in Washington that starts on July 30. Jason Jung replaces Andy in the main draw and will face the Frenchman Benoit Paire.
