Murray also withdrew from next week's ATP Toronto Masters, citing the drain from three gruelling three-set victories over more than eight hours on the United States capital hardcourts. Before the Citi Open began, Murray told reporters, "I'll have to see how the body responds to that".

Now ranked 832nd, Murray ended an 11-month absence from the tour in June, playing just three matches before arriving at the Citi Open.

"I also need to be careful and to listen to my body as I come back from a long- term injury".
