Andy Murray to skip Miami, he will come back in the clay-courts season!- View: 11792 by Gatto Luigi
It's not one of the luckiest years for Masters 1000 event of Miami. If from one side Novak Djokovic's presence is uncertain, from the other one there is a bad news for organizers too: through his Facebook page, Andy Murray announced he won't play next week in Florida due to a right elbow injury, that is hurting Nole as well.
'Apologies to the fans, it's one of my favourite tournaments', the World No. 1 wrote. 'The focus now is on getting ready for the clay season. Thanks as always for the support.' Last year Murray reached the third round in Miami losing to Grigor Dimitrov, so he will lose just 45 points and will have even around 4,000 points more than Djokovic in the Rankings if the Serbian player will withdraw as well.
We will see if Murray will decide to play the Davis Cup quarter-finals tie against France away from home on an indoor clay-court from 7 to 9 April, or if he will comeback directly in the Masters 1000 of Monte Carlo in a month.
It wasn't a remarkable season for him so far: final in Doha, fourth round at the Australian Open, title in Dubai and second round loss in Indian Wells to Vasek Pospisil. Next week he will be 10th in the ATP Race, he will be World No.
1 in the rankings at least until Roland Garros, though, which says a lot about the situation that the men's tennis at high level is living. ALSO READ: Andy Murray: 'I didn't lose because of his serve and volley game' .
