How's that for jinxing!
Andy Murray will miss next week's ATP World Tour event in Marseille as he continues to recuperate following his run to the Australian Open final.
The 22-year-old Scot, beaten by Roger Federer in Melbourne, will now return to action in Dubai on 22 February.
A statement on Murray's official website said: "Andy has taken an extra week off to recuperate and recover for the long season ahead."
Juan Martin del Potro has also withdrawn from the Marseille event.
The world number five has a wrist injury, leaving Sweden's Robin Soderling as the top seed ahead of France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Murray also opted against defending his title in Rotterdam last week.
The 22-year-old said after reaching the Australian Open that he was wary of playing too much in the early part of the season.
After Dubai, he will head to the United States for the Masters 1000 tournaments in Indian Wells, where he reached the final last year, and Miami, where he defends his title.
He then plans to skip the Monte Carlo Masters before opening his clay-court season in Barcelona on 18 April.
Le Poulailler de Poussin!
