Due to a lingering pelvic injury, Andy Murray has withdrawn from the upcoming Australia swing which includes the ATP Cup and the Australian Open.
Murray, who underwent hip surgery 11 months ago, couldn’t train properly earlier this month to the ailment.
“I’ve worked so hard to get myself into a situation where I can play at the top level and I’m gutted I’m not going to be able to play in Australia in January,” Murray said. “After the Australian Open this year, when I wasn’t sure whether I’d be able to play again, I was excited about coming back to Australia and giving my best. That makes this even more disappointing for me.
“Unfortunately, I’ve had a setback recently and, as a precaution, need to work through that before I get back on court competing.”
The 32-year-old is still scheduled for Rotterdam and Montpellier in February.
