Murray pulls out of second Hurlingham exhibition


Murray, who is the men's top seed at the All England Club this year, has won eight titles on grass and his Wimbledon win last July was the beginning of a dominant run that took him to the top of the rankings. You're sitting there and you're feeling: 'Can I quit tennis please?'

However, his team are keen to play down prospects that Murray will pull out of Wimbledon. Even if I was playing against good guys, top 100 or whatever, I wasn't interested.

"We will speak differently if he wins the first three matches".

Jeff Teague to Timberwolves
With the Jazz likely to lose Gordon Hayward in free agency, and now George Hill , they could be ready to build for the future. The 26-year-old point guard stands 6-feet, 4-inches tall and has averaged 10 points per game over the course of his career.

He is also a big fan of Eminem and has two quotes from the American rapper tattooed on his arms: "You won't break me, you just make me stronger than I was" and "Always be a leader and not a follower".

Asked if he would play his opening match on Monday, Murray said: "I hope so, that's the plan". "Unlike [the build up to] Paris, he is hitting the ball really well". Actually, if people don't believe in him, he's going to be better than we expect, because he often finds a lot of motivation when people are against him.

Murray, who won the Wimbledon title previous year, is still planning to play the second exhibition match Friday.

IMF Trims Economic Forecast for US Amid Growth Uncertainty
International Monetary Fund officials said the details of the Trump administration's economic policies appear undecided. The US is enjoying its third longest economic expansion since 1850.

"Andy has been unlucky with a few illnesses [this year] and an elbow injury, and that doesn't help if you don't have as much time to practice or as many matches as you would like".

Murray will be familiar with the off-court eccentricities of lucky loser Alexander Bublik because the 20-year-old Kazakh of precocious talent and untamed joie de vivre interviewed him this summer on behalf of the ATP's NextGen experiment.

"I'm very pleased with the two weeks we've had", he said.

Worlds Ugliest Dog Crowned
The Sonoma-Marin Fair held it's now nationally famous, 29th Annual Ugliest Dog Contest on Friday and a victor has been crowned. Monkey, a 6-year-old Brussels Griffon, and Icky, an 8-year-old unknown breed, were both saved from the homes of hoarders.

"I would be amazed if Andy would not do it", he said. But that time I went somewhere in a forest, sitting there and I'm like, "Okay, whatever". "I'd be happy to say if it was because it would also give me an excuse for why I maybe haven't played my best this year".
