Mur­ray with­draws from the ATP Cup

The Punch - - SPORTS -

Great bri­tain will com­pete at the in­au­gu­ral ATP Cup in Group C in Syd­ney against bel­gium, bul­garia and moldova but Andy mur­ray will not be there to lead the bri­tons. Three-time ma­jor cham­pion has de­cided to skip the first event of the sea­son, deal­ing with a groin in­jury that has been both­er­ing him in the clos­ing weeks of the sea­son, es­pe­cially at the Davis Cup Fi­nals in madrid.

This was ex­pected news, ever since mur­ray had to can­cel his trip to mi­ami where he was sup­posed to work in the off­sea­son, opt­ing to stay home and en­joy with his fam­ily and three kids, be­com­ing a fa­ther for the third time a cou­ple of months ago.

World no. 126 pro­duced one of the big­gest come­backs of the sea­son, pass­ing a long way from that emo­tional Aus­tralian Open to­wards an ATP ti­tle in Oc­to­ber. Strug­gling with a hip in­jury from 2017, Andy had to un­dergo the sec­ond surgery this Jan­uary, work­ing slowly on the come­back and mak­ing a rather re­mark­able one, winning the dou­bles ti­tle at Queen's in June with Feli­ciano Lopez be­fore switch­ing fo­cus on more chal­leng­ing sin­gles du­ties.
