One of the greatest players of all time Andy Murray was ruled out from the Men’s Singles competition in the grand tournament of US Open 2019, starting from August 26th till September 8th. The star tennis player from Scotland is not yet prepared for Singles battle as he already faced a disappointing loss in this season at men’s singles competition. After recovering well from his painful hip injury, Murray took part in the men’s singles battle at Cincinnati Masters 2019 where he lost embarrassingly to Richard Gasquet of France. The Frenchman easily beat the renowned player with the scoreline of 6-4, 6-4.

After this, Andy appeared in recently concluded Washington Open 2019 with his brother Jamie Murray. In that fixture also Murray got nothing but defeat in men’s doubles encounter. Though the talented Murray brothers started off very well as they defeated the strong duo of Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin with the close margin of 6-4, 6-7(7), 10-5. But later they lost in quarter-finals to exceptional pair of Michael Venus and Raven Klaasen.

The 32-year-old Scottish player said while announcing his decision at the official website of ATP tour,” it was a decision I made with my team. I didn’t want to take a wild card today because I just didn’t know how I was going to feel after a match”. Further, he also added, “I felt like I wanted to be fair for me to maybe try and get a couple of matches in before making a decision like that”.

Andy Murray is still recovering from the right hip resurfacing surgery and is likely to make a strong comeback at the singles competition in Winston-Salem next week. Currently, he is not planning to play one-one-one singles battle at all.

When on one side Murray pulled out of US Open 2019, tennis great Rafael Nadal put his best efforts to enter in the grand tournament. The Spaniard who recently clinched his 5th Rogers Cup title on Sunday against World No. 9 Daniil Medvedev of Russia is sweating hard in the court to clinch US Open title as well. He even pulled out his name from Cincinnati Masters for the second year in a row in order to perform in US Open 2019.
