Andy Murray pulls out of Dubai tournament


Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week’s Dubai Championships citing a wrist injury.

The
world No 5 had hinted he would take a break after reaching the final of
the Australian Open last month but instead chose to play in Rotterdam
only a week later.

However, Murray was well below his best and
won only five games in losing his first-round clash to Marcos
Baghdatis. His decision means the 23-year-old is not due to play again
until the Masters Series event in Indian Wells in the middle of next
month.

A statement on his website read: “Andy has withdrawn
from the forthcoming ATP World Tour 500 event in Dubai due to a wrist
injury. Andy would like to apologise to both the tournament and its
fans.”

The Dubai tournament is popular with the world’s top
players, despite being among the second tier of ATP events, and was
Murray’s first outing after his run to the final in Melbourne last year.

However,
he lost in the second round to Serb Janko Tipsarevic and was criticised
after revealing he was under-prepared for the tournament.<!—
