Andy Murray on Sunday delivered the message Wimbledon was dreading: he is pulling out of the tournament.

Asked about Murray's withdrawal, eight-time champion Federer said: 'It must be a tough decision but one he's taking for his career, and his life as well.

It is the first time Murray has missed Wimbledon since 2007 when a wrist injury ruled him out.

Two-time champion Andy Murray withdrew from Wimbledon with a "heavy heart" on Sunday after saying his right hip was still not ready for the demands of a Grand Slam.

After pushing his body in practice sessions at the All England Club over the last few days, Murray has opted against risking a further injury setback with a view to playing the American hard-court swing that culminates in the US Open.

Smith scored a brilliant half-century in his return while a terrific delivery from Lasith Malinga castled Warner . To some, the Australian trio's punishments were harsh, to others, they were nowhere near severe enough.

"I will start practicing on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I'm looking forward to the US hard-court season", Murray's statement read.

The former British number one, a two-time victor at Wimbledon, said it was "too soon" to play five-match sets following his return from injury.

He has played three matches since returning to competitive action, losing against Nick Kyrgios at Queen's then beating Stan Wawrinka in Eastbourne before losing against fellow Briton Kyle Edmund.

Andy Murray, still recovering from hip surgery previous year, announced on Sunday on his Facebook page that he has withdrawn from Wimbledon. "That's for sure. But, you know, again, it just takes time". "We need help! Warm up is at 10:30, court 5 - see you there?"

Murray's place in the draw goes to Jason Jung of Taiwan, the world number 154 who has just one win on the main tour in 2018.
