Paris (AFP) – England tennis player Andy Murray announced on Monday that he was withdrawing from the Queen’s English international warm-up match for Wimbledon due to an abdominal muscle injury.
“I had a CT scan this afternoon and I have an injury to my abdominal muscle, which prevents me from getting ready for this year’s Queen’s tournament,” Scott, the 47th in the world, said in a statement.
On Sunday, Ray admitted he was worried about the condition of his abdominal muscles after appearing on the lawn against Italy’s Matteo Beretini in the final of the Stuttgart tournament in Germany.
“I have to do tests to find out more,” he said.
The former world number one player, who has played in nine matches in two weeks, said, “I felt pain in my abdominal muscle while serving (in the second half of the match).
On Monday, Murray said he was disappointed not to be able to take part in the Queens Tournament, which he has won five times (record), because “he played in good matches on the grass this season.”
Murray was scheduled to face world number 32 Lorenzo Soneko of Italy in the first round. With his departure, the Italian player will play with the lucky loser Denis Gutla, ranked 82nd in the world.
The third Grand Slam, the Wimbledon Championship, which Britain has won twice (2013 and 2016), begins on June 27.
In the first day’s match, Britain’s Cameron Noori came in third, the Americans’ Taylor Fritz came in fourth and Riley Opelka came in eighth. They were 3-6, 4-6 in 13 minutes, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 1-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6, 4-6.
