A right thigh strain has ended the hopes of Andy Murray’s Tokyo Olympics. Due to the injury, the 2-time defending gold medal winner withdrew today from his first round match against Felix Auger-Aliassime.
“I am really disappointed at having to withdraw but the medical staff have advised me against playing in both events, so I have made the difficult decision to withdraw from the singles and focus on playing doubles with Joe,” Murray said.
Murray may have suffered the injury during a first round doubles win on Saturday. He and Joe Salisbury are still in the doubles draw.
Murray was replaced in the by World No. 190 Max Purcell of Australia.
