Latest Sports News
Tennis star Andy Murray will not be available in the Australian Open Competition due to a hit injury, Latest Sports News reports..
Murray said: “Sadly I won’t be playing in Melbourne this year, as I am not yet ready to compete.
“I’ll be flying home shortly to assess all the options but I appreciate all the messages of support and I hope to be back playing soon.”
He wrote: “I’ve obviously been going through a really difficult period with my hip for a long time and have sought council from a number of hip specialists.
“Having been recommended to treat my hip conservatively since the US Open I have done everything asked of me from a rehab perspective and worked extremely hard to try get back on the court competing.
“Having played practice sets here in Brisbane with some top players unfortunately this hasn’t worked yet to get me to the level I would like so I have to reassess my options.
“Obviously continuing rehab is one option and giving my hip more time to recover. Surgery is also an option but the chances of a successful outcome are not as I high as I would like which has made this my secondary option and my hope has been to avoid that. However this is something I may have to consider but let’s hope not.”
“Hope to see you back on the court soon.”
