Fatigued Murray withdraws from Citi Open, Rogers Cup

Murray's decision came after he won a trio of three-setters and was a victim of a schedule that had him start his latest victory at midnight, not long after he has returned from an 11-month injury layoff.

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".

Murray had earlier announced he would not be playing in next week's Rogers Cup, which would have been his first Masters tournament since last spring. It's not good for fans, TV.

"I've played quite a few matches this week in Washington and I need to be smart with my rest and recovery as I come back from injury". On Monday, he didn't play his opening-round match until 10pm because of a five-hour rain delay.

Meanwhile, 10th-seeded Greek teen Stefanos Tsitsipas took one of the biggest victories of his young career with his 6-3, 6-4 upset of Belgian third seed David Goffin.

The former British world No 1 has played just three tournaments since returning from hip surgery in January - losing to Nick Kyrgios at Queen's and seeing off Stan Wawrinka before falling to Kyle Edmund at Eastbourne.

"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.

At 21, Zverev was the oldest player in the semifinals along with the 19-year-old Tsitsipas and de Minaur and 20-year-old Rublev. I don't think it's reasonable.

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

But he held throughout the second to get back on track, ultimately winning 3-6 6-1 6-4 after breaking Nishikori twice in each of the second and third sets. 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'm not sure how well I'll recover from that". Moments after beating Copil, Murray went to his seat, buried his face in a towel and cried for several minutes, sobs audible over courtside microphones.

Murray fought hard in all three matches and got emotional after his win over Copil as he broke down in years after the match.

The frustrations included Murray leading the first-set tie-breaker 5-0 only to drop the next seven points and the set.
