Andy Murray's doubles partner suffers injury scare at Wimbledon

Home favorite Andy Murray has been left to sweat on partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert fitness ahead of his Wimbledon return as the French struggled in his practice on Sunday before bowing out of the singles event on Monday. Many were surprised by the 28-year-old's surprisingly bad performance in the first round against 2018 Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson as the South-African beat the Frenchman easier than expected 6-4 6-4 6-2 win.

Herbert confirmed after the match that something was wrong as he said, per Metro UK: I'm a little bit tired. Yesterday I had, yeah, a tough time in my practice, to stop, because I was scared for one of my quads," Herbert said.

"So I was a little bit scared. But when I did the medical tests, everything was fine: I'm a little bit tired. Yesterday I had, yeah, a tough time in my practice, to stop, because I was scared for one of my quads," Herbert said.

"So I was a little bit scared. But when I did the medical tests, everything was fine "Yeah, not the best way to start, but it's only a start, I hope." However, Herbert hopes he will be able to play doubles with Murray at Wimbledon: "I was scared yesterday because it was a pain that I didn't know really.

So I was really negative. "Yeah, I played today, so it's really positive point. I hope it's gonna be all good from that side in the next couple of days."
