Miami Open 2017 Main Draw

Andy Murray has pulled out the 2017 Miami Open because of an injury to his right elbow.

A lacklustre Murray lost to Vasek Pospisil in the second round at Indian Wells last week.

Murray said: "The focus is on getting ready for the clay-court season. Apologies to the fans, it's one of my favourite tournaments."

The Briton will be replaced in the draw by world number 136 Taylor Fritz.

Murray could return to action in next month's Davis Cup quarter-final against France, which is due to begin on 7 April on an indoor clay court in Rouen.

Novak Djokovic also withdrew from Miami with the same injury.
