Sad news for the fans of the world number two Andy Murray. Because this star withdrew from the US Open 2017 on Saturday due to the hip injury. He will not be able to play in the year’s final Grand Slam tournament.

He said about his injury: “Did pretty much everything that I could get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon. I spoke to a lot of hip specialists. Tried resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here. Was actually practicing OK the last few days, but it’s too sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that’s what I was here to try and do. Unfortunately, I won’t be playing here this year.”
