Due to an ankle injury he suffered at the Miami Open, Andy Murray has to withdraw from two forthcoming tournaments, putting his tennis career on hold once more. Following an intense third-round match against Tomas Machac in Florida last weekend, the three-time Grand Slam champion revealed on Wednesday the nature of his injury.

A complete rupture of his anterior talofibular ligament and a near full-thickness tear of his calcaneofibular ligament. The uncertainty around Murray’s homecoming date heightens the tension among his supporters as they wait for his spectacular comeback.

Andy Murray is in a tough race against time to get healthy in time for Wimbledon, which begins on July 1st and will be his last grasscourt season and the former British No. 1, is expected to seek advice from an expert when he returns to the UK.

Preliminary estimates indicate a six- to 12-week recovery window, which emphasizes how urgently his rehabilitation activities must be undertaken. Murray’s admission that he has little chance of continuing his career past the summer makes his current situation much more dire as he attempts to make a victorious return to the elite tournament circuit.
