Andy Murray will
pull out of Wimbledon due to wrist injury
The Britain's high-ranked
tennis player and Wimbledon eight seeded Andy Murray is pulling
out of the tennis tourney.
Andy Murray was scheduled to play Nicolas Lapentti in the first
round Monday, but the Briton decided to skip the 2007 Wimbledon.
His spot will be filled by Kevin Kim of the United States.
Murray damaged a tendon in his right
wrist at the Hamburg Masters month and a half ago, while playing
against Filippo Volandri. According to his doctor, he should not
play for another two weeks, at least. Andy Murray missed the
French Open due to his wrist injury, as well.
Andy Murray is not the only one
withdrawing out of the tournament. Gaston Gaudio, Paradorn
Srichapan and Mario Ancic all pulled out of the 2007 Wimbledon
due to injuries.
Roger Federer remains the favorite to
win the Wimbledon with odds of 1/3, according to the British
bookmaker Bet365. You can bet on the Wimbledon online at:
