Murray withdraws from Wimbledon warm-up

"They always win. Why should we follow them?"

The hip injury caused Murray to pull out of his first match at Hurlingham against Lucas Pouille, which had been due to be played on Tuesday.

"But on Monday (at Wimbledon) everyone starts from the same position. but we are one of the favourites for the tournament and we will do as well as we can".

His rivalry with his fellow 30-year-old will likely be the one that defines his career and discussing Murray's prospects he said: "I'm sure Andy does everything in his power to get himself ready and prepared for his first match". "If the weather is good I am sure we will practice".

"We have been playing together for 18 months now and hope we keep playing together and finish the year as strong as we can". My feeling was that he was not picking the right shot because he hadn't played enough and that he didn't have the safety of saying: "OK, I can hit this shot 15 times in a row if I have to" and that all comes from competition. Over the years I have entered plenty of tournaments with less than ideal preparation, you just need to accept that it will be the case sometimes and find a way.

The pressure Andy Murray feels at Wimbledon actually helps him concentrate better, the defending champion has said.

"I'm very pleased with the two weeks we had", said Lendl, who explained that Murray had practised with Denis Shapovalov and Grigor Dimitrov at the start of the week. "He was hitting two days ago with Dimitrov and hitting the ball great".

Andy Murray will go into Wimbledon admitting he will have to overcome the "brutal reality" of the physical demands at the highest level to try and navigate his way through the first week.

Defenders Matt Miazga of Chelsea and Eric Lichaj of Nottingham Forest also were among the 23 players selected Sunday by USA coach Bruce Arena. "I assume he doesn't want to risk the injury by playing before the Championships".
