Andy Murray’s quest for his first ATP Tour wins since 2019 continues as he was defeated in the final of the Boss Open in Stuttgart by Matteo Berrettini. More troubling was an apparent left hip injury, for which he sought treatment twice in the third set before losing to last year’s Wimbledon runner-up with a score of 6-4, 5-7, 6-3.
Murray has had one of his best weeks since his hip troubles became public in 2017, defeating players like No. 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas and very strong Nick Kyrgios on his way to his first grass-court final since winning his second Wimbledon title in 2016.
The former World No. 1 Murray had a resurfacing operation on his right hip in 2019, but he struggled with a number of niggles afterwards.
It is a huge concern if the Briton will be able to participate at Queen’s club and especially play the Wimbledon championship pain-free.
The renowned British player was just one win away from being seeded in the third Grand Slam of the year which is scheduled to be started at the last of this month.
