Britain’s Andy Murray pulled out of the Rome Masters on Thursday ahead of his third-round match against Belgian David Goffin.

“I felt tired this morning,” Murray told a news conference. “I practiced 40 minutes and felt pretty exhausted.
“It didn’t make sense for me to keep going because when you feel like this it becomes a risk to play.”

Murray recently won back-to-back tournaments in Munich and Madrid, the first clay-court titles of his career.

“They’ve been three very long weeks for me,” Murray added. “The longest on clay in my career.”

World number three Murray will now rest and in preparation for the French Open, which starts on May 24.
