Murray withdraws from Cincinnati

World No 1 Andy Murray will not compete in the Cincinnati Masters next week due to an ongoing hip injury, but hopes to play at the US Open in New York later this month, he said on Wednesday.

"Unfortunately I won't be playing in Cincinnati as I continue my recovery," Murray said in a statement.

"I always enjoy playing there and I look forward to returning next year. I'm continuing to work hard on the court with the aim of being in New York."

Murray's decision has hampered his hopes of winning a second US Open title as he has yet to play in any hardcourt tournaments in the lead up to the final major of the year.

He has been out of action since losing in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon in July.

The 30-year-old Briton has held the No 1 ranking since November of last year, but that may not last much longer.

Murray's absence at the Rogers Cup in Montreal this week means Rafael Nadal could take the top spot should the Spaniard advance to the semifinals in Canada.
