Andy Murray rules out U.S. Open after loss at Western & Southern

Andy Murray of Great Britain trains on center court during the Western & Southern Open at Lindner Family Tennis Center

"I think there were a lot of things I would like to have done better but you also have to be somewhat realistic in terms of what you expect".

But the Scot now wants to return to the Australian Open - where he has lost five finals - as a contender to win his first title Down Under. Gasquet will play fourth-seeded Dominic Thiem in the second round.

Murray has battled serious injury all year, with genuine concerns that his career was over following the Australian Open in January.

Murray will decide over the next few days whether to play singles in Winston-Salem, in North Carolina next week.

"But I'll probably look at just playing doubles and mixed doubles".

After the match, the three-time grand slam victor admitted that he had needed more time to consider playing singles at the final major of the year, which starts in NY later this month, but was unable to delay his decision to accept a wild card offered by the United States Tennis Association.

"I think physically, you know, my legs were a little bit heavy at the end of the match in comparison to maybe what they normally would be if you played a bunch".

He later announced that he plans to play only men's and mixed doubles at Flushing Meadows, but insisted the decision was nothing to do with how he had fared against Gasquet.

Andy Murray of Great Britain enters the court before the start of his match against Richard Gasquet of France during the Cincinnati Masters in Mason, Ohio August 12, 2019.

"It will be exciting and interesting to see how I get on", Murray concluded.

Top seed Novak Djokovic and number three seed Roger Federer are both placed in the top half. He did not play a match until early May in Madrid. Though the talented Murray brothers started off very well as they defeated the strong duo of Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin with the close margin of 6-4, 6-7 (7), 10-5.

The three-time Grand Slam victor announced his decision after losing 6-3, 6-3 at the Cincinnati Masters first round to Richard Gasquet.

Not having playing singles tennis for several months had an obvious impact, he said.

But 14th seed, Croatian Marin Čilić, fell to a 4-6, 6-7 defeat at the hands of Moldova's Radu Albot.

In the women's draw at the ATP-WTA event, Venus Williams reached the second round with a 7-5, 6-2 victory over American compatriot Lauren Davis.
