Add Andy Murray to the expanding list of players injured or not at 100%. Murray has announced that he will be unable to play in the Marseille tournament which begins on Monday.
In a statement on his website Murray said, “After playing in Australia for five weeks, Andy has taken an extra week off to recuperate and recover for the long season ahead.”
Murray is expected to return in Dubai. He won Marseille in 2008.
It begs the question is Murray mentally over that difficult loss to Federer in the Australian Open final? Those wounds will take time to heal and he is not yet over them.
Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro (wrist), Rafael Nadal (knee), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (wrist), Novak Djokovic (stomach) and Andy Roddick (shoulder) have already had injury type issues in a season that’s just a month old!!
