Andy Murray has pulled out of next month’s Marseille Open as he “may have to undergo surgery again”, the tournament organisers said on Friday. Murray has struggled to regain form since undergoing hip surgery last January and was knocked out in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday.

Murray, who is also scheduled to participate in Montpellier and Dubai next month, said after his Melbourne defeat that he would decide whether to have surgery within a week or push on through the pain to farewell fans at Wimbledon.
Murray said pulling out was a difficult decision as he had fond memories of the tournament. “It’s tough but I don’t have a choice, I was very keen on returning to Marseille where I won the tournament in 2008. This title, one of the first of my career, remains a great memory,” Murray added in the statement.
Murray will be replaced in the main draw of the February 18-24 tournament by 2013 runner-up Tomas Berdych.
