- Nadal: A truce is taken before the US Open
Andy Murray's hip continues to deprive tennis lovers of continuously seeing the triple Grand Slam winner in individual matches. Despite playing in Cincinnati, the Briton has confirmed that he will not ask for a wild card for the US Open , which means that the New York public will not be able to enjoy again the winner of the last major of the year in 2013.
The tournament organization asked him to confirm if he would be willing to accept the invitation this week and the Briton, at the press conference after his doubles match with Feliciano Lopez, confirmed his refusal. Despite this, he said he will be in the doubles, both male and mixed.
This is the second attempt of the Scot so far this year to return continuously to the ATP circuit , which he led for 41 weeks between 2016 and 2017. This year at the Australian Open he managed to take Roberto five sets in the first round Baptist , although he ended up falling like in Cincinnati against Richard Gasquet .
Murray also acknowledged that he was partly sorry for his decision as he did not take into account that the games of the previous rounds of the US Open are played in three sets . "I don't know why I never thought about it, but the reality is that it didn't occur to me until this morning. When I woke up, I told myself, I want to play games to the best of three sleeves," said the double winner of Wimbledon, whose main aim to avoid long-term shocks. "You could test me there and if I can pass the previous one, it may show that I am prepared to play five sets, " he added.
