Andy Murray to undergo back surgery

  • Andy Murray will miss the rest of the season and have a surgery to fix his back problem.

    His management company said "the aim is to be fully fit for the new season." Murray will miss the ATP World Tour finals between Nov. 4- 11 in London as well as master events in Paris and Shanghai in October. 

    Although the player has had back problems in the past, the injury became worse and forced him to pull out of the French Open in May. Murray later returned at Queen's Club and Wimbledon but according to the statement, "after recently playing on hard courts and clay, Andy once again sought medical advice about solving the issue once and for all."

    This year's schedule has 13 tournaments remaining.
