He had been pushed very hard in the final on Sunday by Canadian up and comer Milos Raonic, and subsequently has developed the flu which will keep him out of action this week.

Andy has not participated in this tourni since 2003 and was one of the headliners to participate this year. He told the ATP Tour website: “I’m very disappointed. I’ve waited too long to come back and play this tournament. It’s just unfortunate timing. I was looking forward to coming back. I honestly don’t feel I can go out there and give my best.”
