- Briton pulls out of tournament with abdominal strain
- Caroline Wozniacki loses in second event since comeback
Andy Murray had been forced to withdraw from the Cincinnati ATP Masters 1000 event because of an abdominal strain as he looks to be fit for the US Open, the final grand slam tournament of the year.
Last week Murray reached the third round of the Toronto Masters 1000 event before withdrawing before his match against the eventual champion, Jannik Sinner, because of abdominal pain. He compared it to a similar injury sustained last year in the grass-court season, which he said needed 10 to 12 days of recovery.
