Murray out of Davis Cup date

Murray out of Davis Cup date

Andy Murray has apologised to Scottish tennis fans after he decided not to play in Great Britain's Davis Cup tie against Uzbekistan in Glasgow.

With the change of Davis Cup format meaning fewer home ties, next week's clash could have been the Scot's final chance to play a competitive match in his own country.

Murray will instead stay in the United States for further rehabilitation on his right hip.

Andy Murray's Grand Slam return ended with a second-round exit at the US Open on Wednesday, but the former world number one found reason for optimism in a four-set loss to Fernando Verdasco.

The Scot, playing his first Grand Slam since Wimbledon of last year and just his fifth tournament since hip surgery in June, gave himself a mixed report card.

"I think some of the tennis I played today was some of the best I've played since I had the surgery or since I came back," Murray said.

"There were also periods in the match, especially in the first set, where I really didn't play particularly well.

Andy Murray marked his first Grand Slam tournament in 14 months with a 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 win over Australia's James Duckworth at the US Open on Monday.

Murray, the 2012 champion in New York and playing just his fifth tournament of the year after undergoing hip surgery in January, last featured in a major at Wimbledon in 2017.

Murray, whose world ranking has slumped to 382, goes on to face Fernando Verdasco, the Spanish 31st seed after seeing off the error-prone Duckworth, ranked at 448.

"He was serving big in the first set and the ball was flying around," said 31-year-old Murray who only returned to the tour in June.

"But I started to get into the return games, stood back a little more and that gave me more time to get in the rallies and find my range with my ground strokes."

At 3hr and 17mins on the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, it was Murray's longest match since his comeback in a reassuring indication of his fitness.

Murray hopeful body is ready for U.S. Open grind

Murray hopeful body is ready for U.S. Open grind

Andy Murray's recent injury woes have left him on the outside of the contenders' list for the U.S. Open in New York.

The 31-year-old Brit pulled out of Wimbledon in July as he continued his recovery from a January hip injury. His August included withdrawing during the Citi Open in Washington and suffering a first-round loss to Lucas Pouille in the Western & Southern Open outside Cincinnati.

Andy Murray was beaten 6-1 1-6 6-4 by Lucas Pouille in the first round of the Cincinnati Open.

The Scot went under the knife in January but has had a frustrating time since he came back to the ATP circuit in June.

The former world number one had hoped to build on the momentum that had carried him into the quarter-finals of the Citi Open before he pulled out of the Washington tournament citing fatigue.

But it was world number 17 Pouille who proved to be the more resourceful as he claimed his first win in five tries against Murray.

Murray pulls out of Wimbledon

Murray pulls out of Wimbledon

Andy Murray withdrew from Wimbledon with a "heavy heart" after saying his right hip was still not ready for the demands of a Grand Slam.

Murray made a comeback last month at Queen's Club following almost a year out with the injury that required surgery in Australia in January.

During a news conference he sounded hopeful about his chances of being ready to face Frenchman Benoit Paire in the first round on Tuesday.

But he announced he was pulling out 24 hours later having consulted his team. It is the first time Murray has missed Wimbledon since 2007 when a wrist injury ruled him out.

Andy Murray will not rush a decision about whether or not to play at Wimbledon after winning his first match for 350 days at the Eastbourne championships on Monday.

The 31-year-old returned last week at Queen's Club after almost a year out with a hip complaint that required surgery in January -- losing to Nick Kyrgios.

After taking a wild card at Eastbourne to test his fitness he enjoyed a 6-1 6-3 victory over fellow three-times Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the first round.
