Cape Town - Andy Murray is still hoping to play at the US Open after struggling with a hip injury which saw him crash out of Wimbledon against Sam Querrey.

Though there has been no official word from the world number one's camp over his hip injury and availability, Murray took to Instagram and posted a video of him practising and also posted a photo at a swimming pool with his physio Shane Annun. 

Murray was scheduled to play at next month's Canadian Open and then the Cincinnati Masters before heading to New York for the US Open which starts on August 28.

The situation is not ideal for the US Open, as it looks like world number four Novak Djokovic is set to miss out as he continues to struggle with an elbow injury.

Serbian media reported on Monday that Djokovic's doctor, Zdenko Milinkovic, has confirmed the two-time US Open winner was suffering from a bruised bone in his right arm. 

"He will have to rest for six to 12 weeks, and then we are going to see," said Milinkovic, who added that Djokovic had been to Toronto for specialist advice. 

"The symptoms are calming down. Now with various procedures, it can affect his recovery. Surgery is the last option."
