LONDON,

BRITAIN’S Andy Murray said on Wednesday he is unlikely to play again this season due to a nagging hip injury that forced him to pull out of the US Open. Murray, recently nudged off the top of the world rankings by Spain’s Rafael Nadal, has been struggling with the injury since a five-set French Open semi-final loss to Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka in June. The 30-year-old Scot played at Wimbledon in July but lost in the quarter-finals to American Sam Querrey. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to compete in the upcoming events in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely, the final two events to finish the season in Vienna and Paris due to my hip injury which has been bothering me the last few months,” the three-time Grand Slam champion said on his Facebook page.
