Andy Murray Out With Left Ankle Injury, Clay Season In Doubt?

Andy Murray‘s left ankle turn during a loss Sunday to Tomas Machac at the Miami Masters is going to keep him out for an extended period of time.

Murray took to social Media on Monday to provide an update on his situation.

“Yesterday towards the end of my match in Miami I suffered a full rupture of my ATFL (anterior talofibular ligament) and near full thickness rupture of my CFL (calcaneofibular ligament). I will see an ankle specialist when I return home to determine next steps. Goes without saying this is a tough one to take and I’ll be out for an extended period. But I’ll be back with 1 hip and no ankle ligaments when the time is right 😉”

Murray, who turns 37 in May, has said this summer could very well be his last playing on the pro tour. That means this could be his last appearance at any events he’s able to play, and right now Monte Carlo, Madrid and Rome appear to be in jeopardy.

Murray’s has moved back into the Top 60 with a recent surge of results. The former No. 1 was struggling having lost six straight matches until winning five of his next nine through Miami. This setback will hurt.
