As the New Year begins every person starts it with some new resolutions and new goals. The same thing goes with the players associated with sports. But things are not going well for the British no.1 Andy Murray. He would have thought to get back on the court with a bang through the Australian open but still, New Year has not begun very well for the British Player. Instead of a replenished and fresh start for Murray, he is on the verge of losing some of the major titles in this year.
As he has opted to step out from the Brisbane International which is the first major ATP title of the year. Thus it will not be wrong to say that he has still not fully recovered from his injury and will probably miss the very first Grand Slam of the year beginning from 15th January.
Very difficult phase for the British player due to hip injury
Andy Murray was in a pretty good shape until the injury occurred to him. The 30-year-old player suffered an injury during his quarter-final against Sam Querrey in the 2017 Wimbledon. Later his injury was diagnosed with a hip injury.
Due to this injury, he was forced to withdraw from the rest of the season and even missed the US Open. Various other star players like Novak Djokovic, Stanislas Wawrinka, and Kei Nishikori were also forced to step back from the rest of season and are still not sure about their participation in the Brisbane International.
Previously, Murray was supposed to take part in the upcoming tournament, but a statement on the tournament’s website on Tuesday morning said that British No.1 had pulled out due to pain in his right hip.
A few days back Andy Murray revealed that he is expecting an injury to his hip. If he undergoes a surgery to combat his hip problem then he would miss a major period of the 2018 season.
Although he is still in Brisbane to make his on-court appearance for the upcoming tournament he still very uncertain about his future.
Due to this injury, Murray slipped from 1st position to 16th position as because of his absence from the court.
Let us wish a fast and speedy recovery for the British Player.
