World No 1 Andy Murray continues to struggle with injury in the lead-up to Wimbledon, after confirming his withdrawal from his final warm-up match ahead of the Grand Slam.

The 30-year-old was scheduled to play an exhibition match at Hurlingham Club in London on Friday, but he is still suffering from a hip injury and has opted to rest.

"Sadly I won't be ready to play at the Hurlingham, my hip is still sore and I need to rest it," he said.

Murray is the defending champion at Wimbledon, but will be short of match practice heading into the Championships.

Murray has only played one match on grass this year, which ended in a shock defeat at the hands of World No 90 Jordan Thompson at Queen's.

The Scot is set to open on Wimbledon's Centre Court on Monday.
