Injury scare for Andy Murray just six days before Wimbledon

Posted July 02, 2017

As the defending champion, Murray is due to open the 2017 Championships at Wimbledon with a match on Centre Court on Monday.

"The guys who beat Stan, Milos and Andy had played qualifying or the previous week at a tournament.It's not that surprising to see those guys lose to a guy who had already been on grass for two weeks or played two or three matches".

The world number one Andy Murray has raised fresh injury concerns ahead of Wimbledon by withdrawing from his exhibition match at the Hurlingham Club.

Murray has been forced to pull out of two Wimbledon warm-up exhibition contests at the Hurlingham Club this week, meaning he will begin his title defence at SW19 on Monday without any victories on grass this season.

Konta lost to Hsieh in the French Open first round last month but Bubik and Murray have never met before.

Meanwhile, reports say that the Indian Army is retaliating strongly and effectively in a counter- attack on Pakistan army. There have been 20 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the International Border in Jammu region so far in June.

The 30-year-old's defense of his Queen's Club crown was halted in the opening round by lucky loser Jordan Thompson.

Murray was due to take on Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the tournament in the first match, however, on Tuesday morning it was announced that he would not take to the court because his hip was "a bit sore", leaving his fans tensed.

"It is nerve-racking, I get very nervous and I feel the pressure before Wimbledon every year", Murray pointed out.

Murray was paired with Kazakh qualifier Alexander Bublik in Friday's draw, while Konta is due to play Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei - but both Britons are struggling with injury. He's been unlucky this year with a few illnesses and an elbow injury. "I'd like to think I have many years left in my career".
