Just days before he opens his Wimbledon title defense, Andy Murray is dealing with a sore hip. The World No. 1 was scheduled to play Lucas Pouille in an exo today at Hurlingham but had to withdraw due to the issue.

Murray is still expected to play a second exo match on Friday at the club.

Just yesterday, Murray was practicing with the Canadian teen Denis Shapovalov at Wimbledon.

Murray’s title defense begins next Monday at 1pm on Centre Court.

LUCY Says:

I don’t think it can be that serious. What players wants to hang around all day waiting for the rain to stop anyway? All the events today were rained-off, so no biggie. Even Djoko had to pass on Eastbourne due to inclement weather. The last thing any player wants is to get injured on a wet court!

Willow Says:

Really hope this isnt too serious ….

James Says:

It took an absent Nadal, injured Fed, totally out of sorts Djokovic (and Raonic) for Murray to win Wimbledon last year. he may be the top seed, I would put him at No. 3 or below in terms of chance of winning it. Fed/Nadal are WAY above the rest right now, and their record at Wimbledon is better than anyone else in the draw (perhaps djokovic has a comparable/slightly better record to Nadal at Wimbledon).

James Says:

When it comes to slams, big matches, No. 1. ranking, whatever, there really has only been the “Big 3”. Murray and Stan form the next tier, Stan more recently – its not appropriate to put either of them in the same category as these 3.
