World No. 1 Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week’s Miami Masters with a right elbow injury, the Briton said on Saturday.

“Sadly due to my right elbow injury I will not be playing in Miami,” the two-times champion said in a statement. “Apologies to fans because it’s one of my favourite tournaments. The focus now is getting ready for the claycourt season.”

Murray lost to Canadian World No. 129 Vasek Pospisil in the second round at Indian Wells last week. The Scot will be replaced in the main draw by American World No. 136 Taylor Fritz.
