Andy Murray Back Injury Puts Wimbledon In Jeopardy

Andy Murray bowed out of the Queen’s Club event in London on Wednesday retiring down 4-1 in the first set to Jordan Thompson because of his back.

Murray could very well have played his final match at the event he’s won a record five times.

“When I walked up the stairs before going out, and in the pre-match warm-up, my back was uncomfortable,” the 37-year-old Murray told the BBC.

“It was an awkward atmosphere because everyone could see there was a problem and I didn’t know if I should play or stop. It’s disappointing,” he added. “In hindsight I wish I hadn’t gone on the court.”

Now the focus is on how his back will feel for what might be his Wimbledon farewell where Murray is also scheduled to play doubles with brother Jamie.

Murray says he’ll get a scan on Thursday to better assess the problem.

“I don’t know exactly what the problem is. I hadn’t experienced that before,” said Murray. “I have no idea how long it will take to get better and what the treatment options are.”

Murray will have less than two weeks to get right for the start of Wimbledon which begins on July 1.

Andy is becoming a joke.
Most of it is stringing his sponsors along thinking he is still a viable contender,
Time to put the old nag down and send his remains to a glue factory or put him out to pasture.
Then put up a statue to the malingering Brit at Wimbledon.

Giles Says:

Such harsh words from the poster who is always so FOS. Have some respect . But then again I wouldn’t have expected anything more from a faker fan. Pfffffft.

Wog Boy Says:

Cannot but agree with CF1, what is the point of playing, from once 3 + 1 member to laughing stock on tour, I don’t think even Andy remembers when was the last time he reached final rounds of any atp tournaments nevertheless winning it, can the reason be $$$?!
