KARACHI: Andy Murray of the United Kingdom is in a race against time to play Wimbledon after he sustained an abdominal injury that pulled him out of Queen's last week.

During practice this week, the two-time Wimbledon champion acknowledged there were "positives and drawbacks."

The All England Club hosts the Grand Slam event on Monday, and Murray, who won in 2013 and 2016, says he still struggles with some shots.

"The injury is healing but still not perfect," the 35-year-old said.

"My goal is to try to get to the start line in a good place physically and give myself the best chance to do well."

Murray sustained the injury in the Stuttgart final on June 12 and withdrew from Queen's the next day.

After a scan in London revealed the extent of the damage, the former world number one opted to forego the Cinch Championships.

Murray, who is now ranked 51st in the world, has been hitting with British number two Dan Evans and fellow three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka on the grass at Wimbledon this week.
