Andy Murray has announced he has pulled out of the US Open due to his 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 New York.

Murray was victorious at Flushing Meadows in 2012 but hasn't made it beyond the quarter finals in his subsequent four visits.

Intense rehabilitation work has not helped rectify Murray's hip problem, forcing him to contemplate whether he will play again this season.

The Scot, who looked close to tears, said: "I did pretty much everything I could to get myself ready here, took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon, spoke to a lot of hip specialists, tried resting, rehabbing to get myself ready here and was practising okay the last few days but it's too sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that's what I was here to try and do, so unfortunately I won't be playing this year."
