Andy Murray pulls out of Washington, Toronto tournaments

Murray's decision came after he won a trio of three-setters at the USA tournament and was a victim of a schedule that had him start his latest victory at midnight.

Andy Murray hit out at the scheduling of his third-round match at the Citi Open in Washington after finishing off a three-set victory over Marius Copil at 3.01am.

Citi Open tournament director Keely O'Brien said: "I am so grateful that Andy, an incredible champion, came back to DC to begin what we all know will be a great comeback".

The three-time major champion, coming back from hip surgery, finished his most recent match at 3 a.m. Friday and chose to withdraw rather than play again so soon afterward. It's not good for fans, TV.

Deputies: Teen robs 9-year-old boy's lemonade stand at gunpoint
Public information officer Tony Underwood tells NPR that the robber got away with $17. The Union County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to the entrance of St.

I don't think I should be put in a position like that.

Next up for Alex will be Japanese seventh seed Kei Nishikori, who dispatched Canadian ninth seed Denis Shapovalov 7-6 (1), 6-3. "Nobody", said Murray, a former No. 1 who had an operation on his right hip in January.

The 31-year-old Scotsman won his third three-set victory in four days, having been on the court for eight hours 11 minutes in all, and he started at midnight thanks to a fourth day of rain delays. "I don't know how players are expected to recover from that", Murray said. "I don't think it's reasonable", Murray said.

If his body can take it, Murray plays for a semifinal spot in Friday's last match against 72ndranked De Minaur, who pulled two upsets on Thursday after rain, dumping United States 11th seed Steve Johnson 6-4 7-5 and South Korean eighth seed Chung Hyeon 6-2 4-6 6-2.

Two Men Escape From Nursing Home, End Up At German Metal Festival
When nurses realized that the two gentlemen were missing, they called the local authorities to help them locate the escapees. Sure, it wasn't the outcome they were hoping for, but getting a police escort back to a nursing home is pretty badarse.

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

Storms earlier in the week forced some men to play twice in one day.

The week in Washington saw Murray play the most consecutive matches since returning from the hip problem which kept him out for 11 months and he will now have a week's rest and recovery instead of heading to Canada. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Murray looked set to win the opening set against Copil, ranked 93, after moving 5-0 ahead in the tie-break only for the Romanian to reel off seven points in a row. After the Round of 16 match, Murray sat in his chair and cried into a towel, according to The Washington Post.

"Just the emotions coming out at the end of an extremely long day", Murray said, "and a long match".
