Andy Murray has pulled out of next week’s Dubai Tennis Championships after he and his wife Kim celebrated the birth of their fourth child on Friday morning.

The 33-year-old Brit was planning to play the ATP 500 event, but will instead spend time with his family. Murray has two daughters called Edie and Sophia, and a son named Teddy.

The three-time major champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist still hopes to feature at the Miami Open later this month, according to Stuart Fraser of The Times.

After missing the Australian Open due to a positive Covid-19 test, Murray has played three tournaments. His most recent appearance came in Rotterdam last week – where he was defeated by eventual champion Andrey Rublev in the second round.

Roger Federer also withdrew from Dubai following his quarter-final defeat to Nikoloz Basilashvili at the Qatar Open on Thursday.

The 18-time Grand Slam champion was playing in his first event since the 2020 Australian Open after undergoing two knee surgeries last year.
