Murray withdraws from match because of sore hip

LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray has withdrawn from an exhibition match in London because of a sore hip, less than a week before the start of Wimbledon.

Murray's management company said the decision was made as a precaution.

The top-ranked Murray had been scheduled to play two matches at the Aspall Tennis Classic exhibition event at Hurlingham Club this week following his first-round loss at the Queen's grass-court tournament last week.

Murray, who won the Wimbledon title last year, is still planning to play the second exhibition match Friday.

Wimbledon starts Monday.

The U.S. opens camp Monday in Nashville, Tennessee, and has an exhibition against Ghana on Saturday at East Hartford, Connecticut. The Americans' group stage includes matches against Panama on July 8 at Nashville; Martinique on July 12 at Tampa, Florida, and Nicaragua on July 15 at Cleveland.
