Andy Murray withdraws from Citi Open due to exhaustion

"I'm exhausted after playing so much over the last four days, having not competed on the hard courts for 18 months", said Murray, whose three matches each lasted more than 2 1/2 hours.
CLASH OF BROTHERSThird-ranked defending champion Alexander Zverev took bragging rights in his sibling rivalry, beating 15th-seeded older brother Mischa 6-3 7-5 in their first ATP meeting.
If Murray came to Washington in hopes of getting in some extra work as he tries to return to form after hip surgery in January, he is certainly accomplishing that. "It's not good. And it's basically like playing two matches in a day".
"I'm giving my view right now as someone who's just come back from a very, very long injury layoff". "I don't think I should be put in a position like that, when you're expected to come out and perform the next day".
Zverev will next play Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals on Saturday after the Greek upset third seed David Goffin 6-3 6-4. "Finishing matches at three in the morning isn't good for anyone involved".
Murray hit a forehand long to fall level 3-3, then slammed his racquet to the court, recovered it and hit three winners to reach match point, winning when Copil netted a backhand.
"I'd like to thank the tournament for a wildcard, I always love playing in Canada and look forward to returning next year", Murray, a three-time Grand Slam victor, said.
Australian Alex De Minaur, another 19-year-old, reached the semi-finals by walkover when Murray withdrew, citing the fatigue of three grueling three-set wins that kept him on the court more than eight hours in total.
"I sincerely respect his decision and know that his health and recovery process is his top priority, as it should be".
Murray said in the pre-dawn hours he might withdraw, adding, "I don't know how players are expected to recover".
Murray had earlier announced he would not be playing in next week's Rogers Cup in Toronto.
Tsitsipas is coming off his first run to the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament, last month at Wimbledon.
"That's something the tour needs to look at", Murray said. "And I'm disappointed with that, because I know that the weather's tricky and I know it is for the scheduling, but it's a very hard position to be in".
The match eventually finished at 3am on Friday morning and Murray shed tears into a towel for several minutes courtside as the emotion of the moment overcame him.
