Murray Pulls Out Of Shanghai Masters

WORLD No. 3 Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week's inaugural US$5.25 million Shanghai ATP Masters 1000 because of a wrist injury, organizers said yesterday.

The Briton, who also missed this week's Japan Open for the same reason, joined world No. 1 Roger Federer in pulling out of the penultimate Masters series event of the season.

Murray sustained the injury in Cincinnati in August and, after a medical examination on Wednesday, was advised to rest his wrist for two to three weeks, a statement said.

"I apologize for the inconvenience that my withdrawal may cause but I trust you understand, the situation is beyond my control and I would much rather participate in the tournament than be in the current position regarding my health," Murray said in a letter to organizers.

Murray and Federer, who cited fatigue when he pulled out of the event, are among five players who have already secured their places at November's season-ending World Tour Finals in London.

World No. 2 Rafa Nadal heads the field for the Shanghai Masters at the Qizhong arena from October 11-18.
