Andy Murray withdrew from the Swiss Indoors yesterday shortly before his match with Dutchman Robin Haase with a right buttock muscle strain. The World No 3  was replaced in the draw by Swiss Marco Chiudinelli.

The pullout came after Murray, winner of three titles last month in Asia, had requested a wild card into the event featuring rivals Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.



Murray said that he woke up around 3 am on Tuesday with the pain in his buttock.

"I was struggling to walk," said Murray.
