Murray worries remain as Tsitsipas reaches ATP semis

Andy Murray of Britain right defeats Marius Copil of Romania

"I'm exhausted after playing so much over the last four days, having not competed on the hard courts for 18 months", said Murray, whose three matches each lasted more than 2 1/2 hours.

Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas eliminated No. 3 seed David Goffin 6-3, 6-4 on Friday to reach the semifinals in his Citi Open debut.

1 Andy Murray has been recovering from a hip injury that's kept him out of every major since Wimbledon in 2017, so the last thing he needs is a weird scheduling quirk to force him further out of his comfort zone as he tries to return in time for the US Open.

The Washington event starts midweek men's matches typically not before 4pm, a nod to past complaints by some of having to repeatedly play in the heat of the day while bigger names had cooler conditions at night.

"I also need to be careful and to listen to my body as I come back from a long- term injury".

Tournament Director Keely O'Brien added: "I am so grateful that Andy, an incredible champion, came back to D.C.to begin what we all know will be a great comeback".

The 31-year-old, who only finished his third-round win against Marius Copil at 3am on Friday morning, said in a statement on the ATP website: "I won't be able to play my match tonight".

The British star said he was unlikely to finish post-match conditioning and get to sleep before 5:30am, ahead of a scheduled quarter-final against 19-year-old Australian Alex De Minaur. "I don't know how players are expected to recover from that", Murray said.

"I'd like to thank the tournament for a wildcard, I always love playing in Canada and look forward to returning next year", Murray, a three-time Grand Slam victor, said. By the time you finish doing recovery and everything it's 5.30 or 6 o'clock in the morning.

The 2018 season's fourth and final Grand Slam gets underway on Monday August 27 but Murray will play at most just one tournament before then.

The former world number one also announced on Friday that he was going to skip next week's Toronto Masters. The top-seeded German is looking to become the first back-to-back victor of the hard-court U.S. Open tuneup since Juan Martin del Potro in 2008 and 2009.

"I do understand 3 a.m.is very hard for everyone", O'Brien said.

"Not a whole lot, really, the emotions coming out at the end of an extremely long day and a long match", Murray said of what made him so emotional.

Asked after beating Copil how his body is holding up, Murray replied: "It doesn't feel great, just now".
