Andy Murray to miss more tournaments as pelvic injury lingers

Andy Murray has pulled out of two tournaments in February as he continues to battle a pelvic injury.

Murray suffered bone bruising while representing Great Britain in the Davis Cup in November and hasn’t played since.

The 32-year-old – who had career-saving hip surgery last January – was forced to pull out of next week’s Australian Open with the injury.

Two-time Wimbledon champion Murray has now said he’ll be skipping tournaments in Montpellier and Rotterdam next month as he focuses on gym work with his team.

He said: “The bone bruising is taking longer to heal than first thought, so I won’t be playing in Montpellier or Rotterdam in February. 

“I don’t want to rush anything or put a timeline on my recovery, I’m going to listen to my body and step back on the court to compete when the time is right.”
