Britain's top tennis star, Andy Murray, has sustained a groin injury that has left him unable to take part on the court in his training schedule in Miami.

The Times newspaper reported that the former world number one suffered a bruise to his pelvic bone, during Britain's Davis Cup campaign in Madrid last month, and he played one single match before missing the rest of the event. Murray is expected to take part in next month's Australian Open, which starts on January 20.

The 32-year-old Murray, who has three Grand Slam title under his belt, is ranked 126 in the world.

 Murray will fly to Australia in late December to start preparations for the new ATP Cup team competition that kicks off on January 3rd, according to AFP.

The two-time US Open Series Champion, Murray announced earlier this year that the 2019 Australian Open could be his last tournament, but he returned to the court after hip resurfacing surgery, and beat his fellow veteran, Swiss player Stan Wawrinka, in the final of the European Open in October.
