Andy Murray has been forced to pull out of this week’s cinch Championships at
Queen’s Club due to the abdominal injury he suffered in Stuttgart.

The three-time Grand Slam champion, who is a five-time champion at the tournament held in west London, underwent a scan on Monday which showed a strain to his left abdomen.

However, the former world No 1 is hopeful of being able to step up his preparations for Wimbledon next week.

Murray suffered the injury during a three-set defeat by Matteo Berrettini in the final of the Stuttgart Open on Sunday.

He said: “After having a scan this afternoon, an abdominal injury means I won’t be fit to compete at Queen’s this year.

“The tournament means a lot to me and it’s disappointing not to compete, especially after playing some good matches on the grass already.”

Tournament Director Luiz Carvalho said: “Obviously it’s extremely sad that Andy won’t be able to play here this year. Everyone at the cinch Championships wishes him a speedy recovery. We look forward to welcoming him back next year.”

Murray, 35, last won a title on grass at Wimbledon in 2016 while his last ATP Tour triumph came in Antwerp in 2019. He has two weeks to recover before Wimbledon gets underway on June 27.
