Mur­ray pulls out of Wim­ble­don prac­tice match with sore hip

Tehran Times - - WORLD SPORT -

World Num­ber One Andy Mur­ray pulled out of an ex­hi­bi­tion match at Lon­don’s Hurling­ham Club on Tues­day with a sore hip, less than a week be­fore the start of Wim­ble­don.

“His hip is a bit sore,” said a spokesman for the Scot, who had been due to face French­man Lu­cas Pouille.

Mur­ray’s withdrawal was pre­cau­tion­ary and the two-time Wim­ble­don cham­pion in­tended to play at the club on Fri­day, the spokesman said.

Mur­ray added the two matches at the As­pall Ten­nis Clas­sic to his sched­ule to gain grass court prac­tice after a sur­pris­ing first-round exit from last week’s Ae­gon Cham­pi­onships at Queen’s Club.

Mur­ray’s form has been patchy dur­ing a 2017 sea­son that has been dis­rupted by shin­gles, an el­bow in­jury and in­fluenza.

Wim­ble­don be­gins on July 3.
