Citi Open 2018
Andy Murray withdraws from the Citi Open after beating Marius Copil 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 on Friday reaching the Citi Open quarter-final.
Emotional Andy Murray bawled into his towel on the edge of the court, after his draining victory took three hours and four minutes because of earlier rain delays, they finished at 3:01AM local time in Washington D.C. Murray won all three games, each one lasting at least two and half hours, Brit Andy Murray vs American Mackenzie McDonald 3-6, 6-4, 7-5. British number one Kyle Edmund lost to Andy Murray 7-6, 1-6, -6-4.
All in preparation for the U.S Open, part of his comeback from long lasting surgery on his right hip, causing withdrawal from Australian Open in Melbourne, Roland Garros in Paris, Queens Fever-Tree Championship, Wimbledon 2018, Citi Open in Washington D.C and now Rogers Cup in Toronto, all to do with complications from his hip injury.
The 31-year old Briton, playing in his third tournament after hip surgery, was due to play Australian Alex de Minaur after he defeated South Korea’s Hyeong Chung 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in the quarter- final. The Scot says he will now prepare for the Cincinnati Open near Cincinnati, Ohio, another hardcourt tennis event.
After three-set match victories in Washington, Murray decided it would be better to miss the Rogers Cup – which he won in 2009, 2010 and 2015. Emotional Murray was sobbing into his towel after the grand victory and said after that he thought it was “unreasonable” to ask a player to finish so late and then be expected to play again the next day.
