NY [U.S.A.] August 27: Andy Murray has pulled out of the US Open because of the right hip injury. I tried resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here. "But it's too sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that's what I was here to try and do".
Murray's withdrawal means a reshuffling of the men's draw, with fifth seed Marin Cilic taking over the number two slot and an opening match against American Tennys Sandgren.
Murray has not played since Wimbledon, when he was hampered by the hip injury as he lost to Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals.

And Roger Federer, who is still entered, is dealing with a bad back.
Drysdale says: 'Managing your year and how much you play is a huge thing. It's not as simple as just inserting a lucky loser into the draw where Murray's name was, which is what would happen in a smaller event.
