Andy Murray Withdraws from Davis Cup Due to Shoulder Injury
British tennis player Andy Murray has been forced to withdraw from the final phase of the Davis Cup, which is set to take place from November 21 to 26 in Malaga, Spain. Murray, a two-time Wimbledon champion, sustained a shoulder injury and will not be able to compete against Novak Djokovic in the quarter-final match between Great Britain and Serbia.
“I have a slight shoulder injury which means I won’t be able to compete in the Davis Cup,” said the 36-year-old Scot, who is currently ranked 42nd in the world, as quoted by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). “I’m disappointed not to be able to be part of the team, but I’m now focusing on rehabilitation and preparing for the new season.”
This injury marks the end of Murray’s 2023 season, during which he reached the third round at the Australian Open and the round of 16 at the Canadian Masters 1000. Murray recently parted ways with his coach, Ivan Lendl, just a few days ago.
