Britain’s world number two Andy Murray will “most likely” miss the rest of the season due to a hip injury that kept him out of the US Open, he announced on Wednesday.
“...I won’t be able to compete in (next month’s) events in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely, the final two events (of)the season in Vienna and Paris due to my hip injury which has been bothering me the last few months,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Having consulted with a number of leading hip specialists over the last week, along with my own team, we have decided that this is the best decision for my long-term future,” Murray added.
The Scot, who sustained the injury at the French Open in June, said he would begin his 2018 season in Brisbane in preparation for the Australian Open and would feature later this year in Glasgow against Roger Federer for a charity event.
