It appears that British No. 1 Andy Murray will not be returning to action later this month in Barbados, but it will be through no fault of his own. Due to reported issues with TV rights and sponsorships, the organizers were forced to cancel the exhibition event.
The Dream Cup was set to begin on the 28th of November and was supposed to be an opportunity for the Wimbledon champion to gauge his improvement following his minor back surgery in September. The World no. 4 has been out of competition since sending the British Davis Cup team to the World Group for the first time since 2007, which means he missed the entire Asian Swing and the World Tour Finals.
Fans will have to wait until December to see Murray return to court when he will then begin his 2014 ATP World Tour season at the Qatar Open in Doha as a warm up before heading to Australia to contest for the Grand Slam title. His appearance in Melbourne is not guaranteed as the Scot had previously stated that he will only make an official return if he is “100 percent healthy” at the time. Until then, he will continue to work on his strength and fitness in Miami and improve his chances of being ready in time for the Open.
