London: Andy Murray has pulled out of third place play-off with Cameron Norrie in the Battle of the Brits exhibition tournament, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) said on Sunday.
“Andy Murray pulls out of third place play-off with Cameron Norrie – he will be replaced by James Ward,” a statement under ‘highlights’ section on lta.org.uk said.
Former world No 1 Murray returned to action after a seven-month injury layoff at the charity event organised by his brother Jamie this week.
The 33-year old three-time Grand Slam champion played four matches in five days, beating Liam Broady and Ward en route to the semi-finals where he lost to Dan Evans on Saturday.
Recently, Murray said that Novak Djokovic’s Adria World Tour has given tennis a bad name for its lack of social distancing rules and the subsequent spurt of coronavirus cases that have come for those involved in it. (IANS)
