The Wimbledon double winner had to settle for the Queen’s where she lifted the trophy five times (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016). Andy Murray was indeed injured in the abdomen on Sunday against Matteo Berrettini in the final of the tournament in Stuttgart where he was beaten (6-4, 5-7, 6-3). A scanner confirmed Monday that he would not be in a state to play at 100% this week. He will be replaced on the table by lucky loser Denis Kudla.
Murray could also return to the Eastbourne tournament next week to prepare for the big Wimbledon match. The Scots, who have found good sensations on German grass, want to give themselves every chance to look good in London’s Grand Chelem (June 27-10).
