Slecht nieuws voor Andy Murray

Andy Murray zou normaal gezien op het ATP-tornooi van Brisbane zijn terugkeer vieren na meer dan een half jaar blessureleed, maar de Brit komt dan toch niet in actie.

Hij zou het in de 1/8e finales opnemen tegen de Amerikaan Ryan Harrison (ATP-47). Vandaag raakte echter bekend dat Murray zich terugtrekt uit het toernooi omdat hij nog te veel last heeft van zijn rechterheup.

"Ik wil me excuseren om zo laat forfait te geven", laat Murray weten op instagram. "Ik ga al lang doorheen een moeilijke periode met mijn heup en heb geluisterd naar alle adviezen. Een operatie is ook een optie, maar de kansen op succes zijn niet zo hoog. Ik hoop dat dan ook te kunnen vermijden."

Murray is twijfelachtig voor de Australian Open. "Ik ga in Australië blijven en afwachten hoe ik mij voel. In het weekend ga ik beslissen of ik hier blijf of huiswaarts trek."

Hey everyone.. Just wanted to write a little message on here for anyone interested in what in going through right now. Firstly I want to apologise to @brisbanetennis for withdrawing at late notice and to everyone who wanted to come along to watch me play(or lose?) The organisers couldn't have been more understanding and supportive and I'll always remember that. Thank you. 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. I choose this pic as the little kid inside me just wants to play tennis and Compete.. I genuinely miss it so much and i would give anything to be back out there. I didn't realise until these last few months just how much I love this game. Everytime I wake up from sleeping or napping i hope that it's better and it's quite demoralising when you get on the court it's not at the level you need it to be to compete at this level. In the short term I'm going to be staying in Australia for the next couple of days to see if my hip settles down a bit and will decide by the weekend whether to stay out here or fly home to assess what I do next. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to keep everyone in the loop and get this off my chest as it's really hurting inside. Hope to see you back on the court soon ??‚̧ԳŹ
