Following his first singles match in seven months, Andy Murray says he will not give it a go at the US Open in singles.
Speaking after a loss to Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati, Murray said he would play men’s doubles and possibly mixed. And that the US Open wasn’t going to hold one for Murray until later which is what he wanted.
“I’m not going to play the US Open singles,” Murray stated. “We were hoping to maybe hold a wildcard until a little bit close to the time to see how I feel and get some matches hopefully, and a bit of practice, but they were announcing the wildcards today and didn’t want to wait.
“A decision I made with my team, I didn’t want to take a wildcard today because I just didn’t know how I was going to feel after a match. I felt like I wanted to be fair for me to, maybe try and get a couple of matches in before making a decision like that.
“But I’ll maybe play Winston Salem potentially. But I’ll probably look at just playing doubles and mixed doubles. That’s what I will do at the US Open.”
As Murray said, he could play singles in Winston Salem next week and then later in September he is signed up to play in Zhuhai and Beijing.
