US Open regrets for Murray
Andy Murray admits he now regrets his decision to turn down a wildcard to play in the singles at the US Open.
Murray made the decision to turn down the offer after losing to Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati on Monday, as he was not convinced his body would be up to it.
However after sleeping on it, and then realising the qualifying matches are played over the best of three sets, he wishes he had said yes, but it is too late to change his mind.
"I don't know why we didn't really think of it, but it just never crossed my mind until this morning," Murray told BBC Sport. "When I woke up, I was like - I want to play three-set matches.
"I could maybe test myself there, and if I got through qualifying that might show that I'm ready to play there. But too late, unfortunately."
He does however plan to play doubles, although he is yet to find a partner as Feliciano Lopez will be playing with Pablo Carreno Busta at the request of Spain's Davis Cup captain.
"Unfortunately he's taken, and a lot of the players have partners now," Murray said. "It's not easy to find anyone at this late notice, but I'm sure we'll get someone."
