Andy Murray "gutted" to miss Australian Open

:Headline: Andy Murray 'gutted' to miss Australian Open:
The Scot has only just begun hitting again.
PA | 1mo

Andy Murray has admitted he is "gutted" to miss the Australian Open after failing to recover in time from an injury picked up at the Davis Cup finals last month.

The 32-year-old's contribution to Great Britain's efforts in Madrid was restricted to one match after he suffered a problem with his pelvis.

It was initially thought the issue was minor and would not affect his participation in either the season-opening ATP Cup or the Australian Open, which was set to be Murray's grand slam comeback.

But alarm bells rang when he cancelled his training block in Miami and on Saturday his management company announced the Scot would not be travelling to Australia.

By winning the European Open in Antwerp in October, Murray raised hopes that his days as a contender for the biggest titles may not yet be finished.

But he will not play a match until February at the earliest, with his first tournament now scheduled to be the Open Sud de France in Montpellier beginning on February 2.

Murray's announcement also means he will not be part of the Great Britain team at the ATP Cup in Australia, which starts on January 3.

Murray qualified Britain for the inaugural edition of the team event through his protected ranking of world number two but Dan Evans and Cameron Norrie will now carry the responsibility in singles.

Britain play group matches against Bulgaria on January 3, Belgium on January 5 and Moldova on January 7, all in Sydney.
