Recovery taking longer than expected – Murray
Andy Murray says he won’t rush his recovery from a pelvic injury after admitting it’s taking longer than expected.
The former world number one is set to miss this month's Australian Open due to the issue after revealing "bone bruising" is still causing discomfort.
Murray, who was last seen in action at the Davis Cup in November, has also withdrawn from tournaments in France and the Netherlands in February.
His career has never been the same since undergoing hip surgery at the start of 2019 and Murray insists he won't rush back as he looks to avoid any further setbacks,
Murray said: "I don't want to rush anything or put a timeline on my recovery.
"I'm going to listen to my body and step back on the court to compete when the time is right.
"The bone bruising is taking longer to heal that first thought, so I won't be playing in Montpellier or Rotterdam in February."
