After announcing his withdrawal from the Australian Open, it was hoped that Andy Murray would recover in time for the February indoor events, but the Scot has now pulled out of those tournaments as well.
“The bone bruising is taking longer to heal than first thought, so I won’t be playing in Montpellier or Rotterdam in February,” Murray told the Guardian.
“I don’t want to rush anything or put a timeline on my recovery,” he said. “I’m going to listen to my body and step back on the court to compete when the time is right.”
So could Murray return for the Masters events at Indian Wells or Miami where he frequently trains?
The former No. 1 tweeted a picture of his continued re-hab.

It was just about two years ago when the Scot underwent his first hip surgery. He underwent a second procedure last January.
He finished 2019 on a high note capturing the Antwerp title, but later began dealing with pelvic issues.
