Murray must focus on fitness: Becker

While Murray said his hip injury was not to blame for his exit, three-time Wimbledon champion Becker told the BBC the Briton’s movement was clearly affected.

"He has got to think long term, not worry about making the US Open - if he is moving there like he did at Wimbledon, then he won’t win it anyway," the German said.

"His ranking should not be a concern either. Again, he will not defend it if he is not healthy, so he should just forget it. He has been there and done it and he does not have to prove anything anymore that he is good enough to be number one."

Becker said he understood why Murray would have played at Wimbledon even if he was not 100 percent fit.

"I understand why Andy played Wimbledon, because it is his number one tournament every year, and he was also the defending champion. He was desperate to make it work," added Becker, who won six Grand Slam titles.
