World No 1 Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week's Miami with a right elbow injury.

"Sadly due to my right elbow injury I will not be playing in Miami," the two-time champion said in a statement on Saturday.

"Apologies to fans because it's one of my favourite tournaments. The focus now is getting ready for the clyacourt season."

Murray lost to Canadian world number 129 Vasek Pospisil in the second round at Indian Wells last week.

The Scot will be replaced in the main draw by American world number 136 Taylor Fritz.
