Andy Murray Pulled Out of Wimbledon

Andy Murray has pulled out of Wimbledon after failing to fully recover from injury, he announced on his Facebook page.

"It is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing that I'll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year", Andy wrote.

"We did everything we could to try and be ready in time". I want to keep playing as long as I can, providing I'm physically capable of doing that.

Murray had said he would take part in Wimbledon, which he has not missed since 2007, "unless in the next couple of days I wake up and don't feel good".

Murray had been eyeing Wimbledon as his return to Grand Slam tennis, but stated earlier in the week, in an interview with BBC, that he wasn't going to play in Wimbledon if he wasn't competitive. He is pulling out mainly because he doubts he could compete in a best-of-five match. Andy, who won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016, played at Queen's last month after taking nearly a year out of playing due to his injury.

Raonic was runner-up to Murray in the 2016 Wimbledon final and Broady was no match for the Canadian 13th seed.

Murray's first-round match against Benoit Paire was scheduled for tomorrow.

Murray was beaten by Nick Kyrgios at Queen's Club then saw off Stan Wawrinka at Eastbourne on Monday, but the former world number on lost to Kyle Edmund on Wednesday.

"I'm practicing at a high level, a high intensity, every day with some of the best players in the world". Murray will surely be in touch to congratulate Swan, who recently revealed she has spent more time discussing reality show Love Island with the star than she has talking tennis.

Jason Jung will take Murray's place in the draw on line 112.
