Andy Murray admits he’s unlikely to play again until 2018
Andy Murray has admitted his tennis season is probably over due to an ongoing hip injury.
The Dunblane star has been out of action since losing in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in July.
In a post on social media, he confirmed he was pulling out of upcoming events in Beijing and Shanghai and is unlikely to take part in the year-ending tournaments in Vienna and Paris.
Andy said it’s been a “frustrating” year on court but is confident an ‘extended period of rest and rehabilitation’ will allow him to return in 2018.
He said, “Having consulted with a number of leading hip specialists over the last week, along with my own team, we have decided that this is the best decision for my long-term future.
“Although this has been a frustrating year on court for many reasons, I’m confident after this extended period of rest and rehabilitation that I will be able to reach my best level again and be competing for Grand Slam titles next season.”
