Andy Murray has withdrawn from Cincinnati putting his status for the US Open in doubt.

The world No. 1 announced he will miss his second straight Masters 1000 event due to a nagging hip injury.

"Unfortunately I won't be playing in Cincinnati as I continue my recovery," Murray said in a statement. "I always enjoy playing there and I look forward to returning next year.

"I'm continuing to work hard on the court with the aim of being in New York."

The three-time Grand Slam champion has not played a match since falling to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon and could lose his No. 1 ranking on Monday.

If second-ranked Rafael Nadal reaches the semifinal of this week's Rogers Cup in Montreal he will regain the top spot for the first time in three years.

Murray has played the US Open 12 consecutive years. The 2012 US Open champion has reached the Flushing Meadows quarterfinals or better in five of the last six years.

Reigning US Open champion Stan Wawrinka pulled the plug on his season due to a knee injury. Wawrinka departed the field after 2016 US Open runner-up Novak Djokovic ended his season due to a chronic elbow injury.
