Andy Murray, the worlds former number 1, says he will play no part in this month’s US Open.
The 2012 champion had intended to play in the doubles tournament, but says “doubles is done for me for the time being”.
Instead, he will play singles at next week’s ATP event in Winston-Salem, before considering entering a tournament on the Challenger Tour during the US Open.
“I’m not going to play doubles at the US Open,” Murray told BBC Sport.
After Murray and Feliciano Lopez reached the doubles quarter-finals in Cincinnati he said: “My goal is to get back playing at the level that I want to on the singles court, and I’ve decided that I need to focus all my energies on that right now,”
So Murray is focusing on his single play, and maybe he strikes to reach the world top 3 again some time soon. We hope!
