Murray is out for a long period due to a torn ankle ligament

The Briton was injured during the third round match of the tournament in Miami

British tennis player Andy Murray out indefinitely due to torn ankle ligaments. The former world number one was injured during the third round match of the ATP 1000 tournament in Miami against Tomas Machac.

“Towards the end of the match in Miami, I had a complete tear of the anterior talofibular ligament and an almost full-thickness tear of the calcaneofibular ligament. When I get home I will see an ankle specialist to determine next steps. Needless to say, this is not an easy step and I will be away for a long period. But I will return with one hip and no ankle ligaments when the time comes,” the tennis player said.

In the third set of the match with Makhach, Murray fought back from a score of 0:3, after which he was injured. Returning to the court after a medical break, Andy eventually lost in the tiebreaker.

In 2017, Murray suffered a hip injury and missed more than a year. Andy later had surgery on his pelvic bones.

The Briton is ranked 62nd in the latest ATP rankings. In 2024, Murray planned to compete at Roland Garros and the Olympics in Paris.
