Murray to undergo back surgery, doubt for rest of season

Andy Murray looks set to miss the rest of the season after opting to undergo minor back surgery next week, according to initial reports.

The two-time Grand Slam winner has identified this period as the right time to fix his long-standing problem with the next Major not until next year in Australia, although his participation at the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals is now in doubt.

He withdrew from the French Open citing a back issue earlier in 2013 and also admitted that it felt sore during the Davis Cup tie with Croatia.

Murray has enjoyed a fine season which has seen him reach the final of the Australian Open, end Britain's 77-year wait for a men's champion at Wimbledon, and lead Britain back into the Davis Cup World Group.
