Murray to skip Davis Cup after losing to Zverev
Murray, 34, was knocked out of the Indian Wells Masters in the third round on Tuesday night in a 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) defeat by Alexander Zverev.
He won 11 points out of a possible 12 to help Great Britain win the Davis Cup for the first time in 79 years in 2015.
“I’ve given a lot to the Davis Cup, and sometimes to my own detriment physically,” he told BBC Sport.
“The same thing happened last time I played Davis Cup at the end of 2019. I know there was Coronavirus but I was struggling with that really up until September time the following year.”
Murray suffered bruising to his pelvis in the 2019 Finals in Madrid, missed the Australian Open and was not able to play again until the tours resumed, after a pause for the pandemic, the following August.
