Andy Murray is not out of a strong start to the Tokyo Olympics, after suffering a slight thigh pressure, the two-time defending champion has announced his decision to withdraw from the men’s singles event.

Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery shortly after winning his last Olympic gold medal in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. Thanks to a one-year delay due to the novel Coronavirus Pandek, he was able to participate this summer.

However, Scott decided to make a strategic decision after winning the opening doubles match with teammate Jose Slasbury on Saturday. He was knocked out of the singles event, where he was to face Felix Auer-Eliasim of Canada in the first round. Max Porkel of the Australian team will take his place in the singles draw.
