Andy Murray has pulled out of the US Open after failing to recover from a hip injury 

Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week's U.S. Open, citing a hip injury.

The Scot has been suffering from the problem for a sustained period and has decided it would be best if he missed the upcoming tournament in NY.

Roger Federer remains the No. 3 seed is still in a stacked top half of the draw along with Rafael Nadal.

The 30-year-old must now decide what to do moving forward and whether to follow Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori, who have all brought their seasons to an early end because of injury.

But, if he does decide to go under the knife, Smith believes Murray can take confidence from the form shown by Roger Federer after his own knee surgery and lengthy break.

Murray - who has been struggling with the injury since before Wimbledon - announced the decision on Saturday, just two days before the tournament begins.

'The players do take care of their health more professionally now, but they're also subjecting themselves to much more serious tensions and pressures to the body than in the past'.

"Ultimately that's what I was here to try and do, so unfortunately I won't be playing this year".

Brad Gilbert, former coach of Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Murray, adds: 'With the polyester strings now, guys are able to hit the ball harder, so maybe that bleeds into some wrist issues that we have had'.

"I'll definitely make a decision on that in the next few days", Murray said.

'We were discussing that when I came up in the late 70s, ' says the seven-time Grand Slam champion. We were hoping that by taking a few weeks off and resting and rehabbing and really reducing the load that I was putting through it, I would be okay by the time US Open came around. I miss competing, and I'll try to get myself back on court as soon as I can.

"I spoke to a number of specialists about it to get the best advice possible".

No. 5 Marin Cilic, the 2014 champion, shifts to Murray's slot in the bracket and takes on the man who was supposed to face Murray in the first round, Tennys Sandgren of the United States. No. 17 seed moves into Cilic's position, and Philipp Kohlschreiber becomes the No. 33 seed and moves into Querrey's position in the draw.
