Not only did Andy Murray suffer a shock 64, 75 loss today to David Ferrer in his home ATP World Tour Finals, but now the Scot may be forced to withdraw.
Murray, who withdrew from Basel a few weeks ago with a gluteal strain, is now dealing with groin injury.
Speaking to the press, Murray said the injury may end his season prematurely.
“I’ll decide tomorrow whether or not I keep playing,” Murray told the UK Press. “You’ve got to sometimes do the right thing. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to feel on the court today. I haven’t been able to do too much training this week. I played, I didn’t feel particularly great. I’ll see if I feel any better tomorrow.”
Murray revealed he sustained the groin issue just after Paris. He said had the event not been the World Tour Finals he would have withdrawn before the tournament.
Murray is hoping to have a good result this week and finish the year ranked at No. 3. But with rival Roger Federer playing well if he does withdraw it would leave the door wide open for the Swiss to jump ahead.
If he does withdraw Janko Tipsarevic will assume his position in the field.
