Xinhua News Agency, Sydney, December 29. The Australian Open organizer announced on the 29th that three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray will miss the Australian Open in January 2020 due to a pelvic injury.

Australian Open organisers issued a statement on Sunday saying: "We are very sorry to announce that Andy Murray will be absent from the Australian Open in 2020. Hope to see you again in 2021, Andy!"

Murray, 32, was injured when he fought for the British team at the Davis Cup last month. Murray said in a statement: "I have been working hard to enable myself to reach the highest level of competition. However, my injury prevented me from qualifying for the Australian Open in January."

Murray will also miss the inaugural ATP Cup, which will start in Australia on January 3. Previously, except Federer, nine of the world's top ten men's players have confirmed their participation in the new tournament jointly launched by the Men's Professional Tennis Players Association (ATP) and the Australian Tennis Association.

"I know how excited Andy was when he returned to the Australian Open and I understand his disappointment now," said Craig Taylor, CEO of the Australian Tennis Association.
