Two-time champion Andy Murray has withdrawn from Wimbledon on the eve of the tournament.
Murray, 31, has claimed that it is "a bit too soon" to be playing "best-of-five-set matches" as he continues his recovery from a hip operation.
The Scot, however, has revealed that he will not be ready to compete at the championships.
"It is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing that I'll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year," Murray posted on his official Facebook page. "We've decided that playing best-of-five-set matches might be a bit too soon in the recovery process.
"I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I'm looking forward to the US hard-court season."
Former world number one Murray triumphed at Wimbledon in both 2013 and 2016.
