Murray faces a new fight to get career back on track

Published

Andy Murray has pulled out of next week’s ATP Tour event in Cologne because of a lingering pelvic problem.

 

The former world No.1 revealed ahead of the French Open last month that he had been forced to rest following a second-round loss at the US Open because of tendinitis in his left psoas muscle, which connects the spine to the femur.

 

Murray said he had felt good physically once he began training on clay, but he suffered a chastening first-round loss to Stan Wawrinka in Paris and was then beaten by Fernando Verdasco in his opening match in Cologne on Tuesday.

The Scot had been due to stay on in the German city for this week’s second tournament, the bett1HULKS Championships, where he had been drawn to face Serbia’s Danilo Petrovic.

 

Murray said: “I’ve been dealing with tendinitis in my left psoas on and off since the US Open.

“I’ve been trying to deal with it in training and matches. Unfortunately after my match here this week it’s flared up again. I’ve been practising the last few days and trying to manage it, but I decided that it was not going to be good enough to play.”

It now appears very unlikely that Murray will compete at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna starting on October 26 but the Paris Masters the following week is understood to be a possibility.

 

The news is yet another indication that Murray’s biggest challenge if he remains committed to trying to return to the upper echelons of the sport will simply be staying fit.
