    Murray out of Wimbledon !

    11 months out after a hip operation and he's now pulled out - I played 9 holes 3 weeks after having my first hip replaced and 5 weeks following the second one.

    Is he a wimp ? 😁😁😁

    Shame he has pulled out - i think going 5 sets was just a bit too early in his comeback for him , hopefully he can build his fitness up for the final big hardcourt season

    I assume that, as he's pulled out before the start, there will be an alternate taking his place rather than giving his first round opponent a walkover...
    Best to pull out now rather than play a set and a half and then call it a day.

    He only had the op in January, so, perhaps a good decision. There is always next year

    Blimey Chris, 9 holes v 5 Sets? Similar fitness required!

    An air of inevitability about the announcement as he wasn't really making positive noises after his other recent grass court appearances and I think in his mind he already knew he wasn't fit enough to play, certainly to compete
