“Did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon.”
“I spoke to a lot of hip specialists. Tried resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here. Was actually practicing OK the last few days, but it’s too sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that’s what I was here to try and do.
