Illness forces Murray to pull out

British number one Andy Murray has withdrawn from the Swiss Indoors event because of a throat infection.
The 19-year-old Scot had been due to face Argentine Juan-Martin Del Potro, but will now fly back to Britain.

He hopes to recover from his illness in time to take his place in the draw for next week's prestigious Paris Masters.

Murray had said earlier this week that he felt mentally tired after a long season and was not sure whether he would play in the event in Basle.

I hate to say it, but when players are unsure about playing in a Tournament or not and then they end up "sick" I kind of wonder about that. And not just Andy, but any player in that situation. I think he wanted a rest in the first place so he decided to take it :zzz:

I would much rather he plays in Paris. If he doesn't, he will have to count a zero as one of his countable tournaments, which would do his ranking no good at all. So if he is as jaded as he seems to be, missing this tournament is a good thing.

It does seem a bit of a dubious illness in view of what he said last week, but it could be that he said what he did about finishing the season early because he was feeling low, and that feeling low may have been because this virus was starting.

I would rather he play Paris also. A report from a poster at the Tournament said Andy was walking around the Hotel looking fit so I have to think that he wanted the rest :zzz: But then, of course, maybe I'm the one that is jaded :lol:
