Andy Murray roar

Andy Murray suffers further injury setback, making his return unlikely for another four months

Andy Murray has suffered a further injury setback, with it being reported he will now miss the Miami Open too.

Murray finished last season with a sense of real optimism after winning a first singles title since hip surgery, beating Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open in Antwerp.

He then went to the Davis Cup, but was restricted to just one match due to a groin injury.

That put paid to his plans to play at the ATP Cup and Australian Open in January.

He then put his plans back further, withdrawing from Montpellier and Rotterdam too, with Miami believed to be next on his list of targets.

However, the Daily Mail are reporting that Andy Murray has now abandoned those plans too.

With clay court season, which Murray is expected to skip due to the harsher physical demands of the surface, coming directly after Miami, the reality now may be that Murray will not be back on court until grass season.
