Andy Murray pulls out of Wimbledon practice match with sore hip

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

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 grasscourt practice after a surprising first-round exit from last week’s Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club.
