Sky Sports tennis expert Greg Rusedski was disappointed to see former world No. 1 Andy Murray withdraw from Wimbledon and also thinks that it only adds to the claims that the Scot won't last too long. The two-time Grand Slam champion was drawn to meet France's Benoit Paire in round one but announced on Sunday that he won't be playing at The Championships this year.
Murray skipped the entire second part of the 2017 season due to a hip injury and eventually underwent a hip surgery at the beginning of this year. The three-time Grand Slam champion insisted during the rehab process that he won't return until he's not at 100 percent.
Murray returned to action at the Fever-Tree Championships in Queen's and also played last week's Nature Valley International in Eastbourne. "Obviously very disappointing that Andy Murray has pulled out of Wimbledon -- but this creates more speculation of how much longer he will play as grass courts are much easier on the body than hard courts.
Wishing him a speedy recovery and hoping he will be fully fit again," Rusedski wrote on Twitter. Also read: Andy Murray has withdrawn from Wimbledon!
