Murray Aussie Open prep suffers setback
Andy Murray's preparations for the upcoming Australian Open have been hit by a groin injury.
The former world number one is still on the comeback trail from the hip issues that required resurfacing surgery and forced him out of action following last year's Australian Open.
Murray, who beat Stan Wawrinka to win the European Open back in October for his first ATP title since victory at the 2017 Dubai Championships, suffered a bruise to his pelvic bone, which restricted him to just one match in Great Britain's run to the revamped Davis Cup semi-finals last month.
Now it is reported by The Times that he is struggling with a groin injury and has cancelled his two-week training block in Miami, for which he was scheduled to fly out on Thursday.
The 32-year-old is not expected to abandon plans to play at the first major of 2020 at this stage and will travel Down Under at the end of this month to begin his preparations, with the Australian Open set to get underway on January 20.
