Murray out of ATP tour finals
Andy Murray shows frustration during his US Open quarter-final against Stanislas Wawrinka in New York on September 5, 2013
World number three Murray had an operation last month and Wednesday saw the two-time Major winner confirm what had long been suspected when he announced he wouldn't be fit to play in the showpiece event.
"I'm really disappointed not to be playing this year, I love playing in front of my home crowd, it's a great atmosphere," Murray told atpworldtour.com.
"All the players look forward to competing in London and I'll be doing my best to qualify again for the tournament next year.
