Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori withdraw from Australian Open

Because of suffering from injuries, both Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori said that they will not play at the first Grand Slam tournament in 2020.

A few months ago, British tennis player Andy Murray impressed by returning from a hip injury. After seeing his performance at that time, many people believed that Murray could surprise his supporters at the 2020 Australian Open.

However, things did not happen as they expected, when his injury became worse recently. Speaking about that, Murray said he would not be able to play until the Wimbledon, which meant he would also skip Roland Garros.

Consequently, it made Tim Henman replace him by James Ward for the ATP Cup. On the other hand, another top tennis player namely Kei Nishikori would be absent from the Australian Open due to elbow injury.

Like Murray, Nishikori would also withdraw from ATP Cup, missing the chance to play against strong rivals such as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Nishikori said that he has been sidelined since he suffered an injury at the 2019 US Open. Although Nishikori tried his best to get well soon, he was still not ready to complete at Grand Slam tournaments.

Consequently, Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori followed Lucas Pouille's withdrawal from the Australian Open. Last year, he impressed by advancing to the semi-finals, but a serious injury prevented him from competing in Australian this year.
