Tennis fans left shattered over Andy Murray drama: ‘Very sad’

Andy Murray is in a race against time to be fit for Wimbledon after suffering an injury scare in the Stuttgart Open final against Matteo Berrettini.

The former World No.1 and three-time grand slam champion went down 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 to his Italian opponent on Sunday.

But despite the brilliant week, there are now concerns about Murray’s fitness ahead of Wimbledon.

The 35-year-old required treatment on court by the trainer for an abdominal injury that hampered him throughout the match.

“I don’t know the severity of it. I need to have it checked out and hopefully everything will be alright,” Murray said after the match.

“I had some pain in the abdomen when I was serving (second half of the match). That’s never happened before.

“I won’t know anything until I get it checked out. It’s tough to say anything about the next weeks.”

With Wimbledon starting in two weeks on June 27, time is ticking for Murray to regain match fitness.

“I’ve played a lot of matches, probably the most I’ve played on grass since 2016 (and his second Wimbledon title),” he said.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve played nine matches in 14 days. So it’s probably normal that I feel some stuff in my body.”
