Andy Murray vs Jordan Thompson LIVE: Queen’s tennis latest as Brit pulls out of tournament with injury

Andy Murray had to default in the first set of his second-round match at Queen’s against Jordan Thompson with an injury.

Murray, a former world number one, earned a hard-fought 6-3 3-6 6-3 win over Alexei Popyrin on Tuesday to progress in the tournament, but was limping in the warm up and had to get the trainer out after the first three games, before continuing for another two more.

Despite hobbling around the court and not being able to serve with any power, Murray managed to win one game, but called the match with the score 1-4.

The 37-year-old has dropped out of the world’s top 100, and the win over Popyrin was only his seventh of the season as he has continued to fight against ruptured ankle ligaments in March and a back injury.

Murray has won Queen’s a record five times, but is not expected to extend his career beyond Wimbledon and the summer Olympics in Paris.

Thompson is currently ranked 43 in the world, but has been as high as 32, and the 30-year-old has won one title this year.
