Andy Murray pulls out of US Open with hip injury

Andy Murray given favourable draw at UD Open but doubts remain over fitness

Andy Murray given favourable draw at UD Open but doubts remain over fitness

Murray pulled out of the tournament after his final practice session with Lucas Pouille after the hip injury that hampered him at Wimbledon flared up again.

In the women's draw, seventh seed Johanna Konta will begin her campaign against Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic but things get tougher fairly quickly for the 26-year-old, who is in the same half as Simona Halep and Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza. Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka, the defending US Open champion, are also absent at Flushing Meadows because of elbow and knee injuries, respectively, and will not return to the tour until next season.

This time past year Roger Federer was coming to the end of an idyllic break, spending quality time with his family and hiking in his beloved Swiss mountains. The latter has played an astonishing average of 82 matches in each of the last ten years. Obviously, I kind of ran out of time maybe if I'd been able to take a little bit more time off. "I want to be back on court as soon as I can".

"That's something that I'll sit down and decide with my team", he replied.

Bangladesh went on to bowl out Australia for 217 before reaching 1-45 at stumps to extend their overall lead to 88 runs. Electing to bat, Bangladesh put up 260, courtesy resilient knocks from Tamim Iqbal (71) and Shakib Al Hasan (84).

Murray suffered the injury in a five-set French Open semi-final loss to Swiss Stan Wawrinka in June.

The world number two struggled through Wimbledon with the problem, losing in the quarter-finals to Sam Querrey, but his prospects for Flushing Meadows had looked positive when he travelled to NY last weekend. "I spoke to a lot of hip specialists, tried resting, rehabbing, to try to get myself ready", Murray said on his condition, as quoted by the Guardian.

Murray, who was overtaken by Rafael Nadal as the world No1 this month, is not the only player feeling the effects of a gruelling year.

"I spoke to a number of specialists about it to get the best advice possible", Murray said.

How you can help those affected by Hurricane Harvey
If you don't get a clear answer - or if you don't like the answer you get - consider donating to a different organization. Direct Relief is in need of funds to continue their worldwide effort and replenish supplies.

He also didn't play in the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati because of his hip issues.

"I was actually practising OK the last few days". However, because the withdrawal came before a match was played, there has been a modest reshuffle of other seeds.

"But obviously I'll need to make the correct decision and really think it through these next couple of days with my team, and then make that decision".

The Pepper Hamilton review also led to the departures of school president Kenneth Starr and athletic director Ian McCaw. Hamilton (0-8) raised alarm bells when it announced the hiring of Briles as an assistant to new head coach June Jones.
