A dejected Andy Murray has finally pulled out of the ATP World Tour Finals having failed to heal properly from a groin injury.
Injury extinguishes Murray’s tournament hopes
The 24-year-old admitted to BBC Sport that he felt “disappointment” and “upset” after quitting the tournament. (Watch the full interview here)
He originally sustained the injury during training on November 14 and was advised to take up to 10 days off to recover. However, his partaking in the ATP World Tour meant he was unable to relax as required.
Murray eventually conceded that playing while injured would do more damage to himself than good and on Tuesday announced his withdrawal from the Tour.
His exit is yet another reminder of the importance of a complete recovery from all sports injuries.
