The injury was aggravated during last month’s Davis Cup defeat by Poland, though he still completed two singles and one doubles match in that tie.

A statement on Murray’s official website read: “Andy is disappointed not to be competing in Japan, but on the basis of medical advice, he has decided to give his left wrist further time to recover.”

He added: “His injury is improving on a daily basis and Andy is very close to resuming full training. The wrist will be assessed again this weekend.”

Murray is due to be in action once again at the Masters event in Shanghai the following week.
