Andy Murray out of 2013 Season & ATP World Tour Finals

Andy Murray is now recovering from his back surgery and tweeted this thumbs up pic saying “Thanks for all the well wishes, means a lot to me…”.  Murray announced last week the was choosing to have a minor operation on the injury in order to  “avoid aggravating the problem further”  The 26-year-old added: “First thing I said when I came round was ‘did I win?’ #somethingsneverchange.”

The injury has taken him out of the season and esp the ATP World Tour Finals at the 02 arena – probably the 2nd most prestigious win an ATP player can have after one of the Grand Slams.

The back issue that Murray has battled with is an injury with which he has suffered before this year. It flared up badly in May during the Rome Masters, prompting him to abandon a second-round match against Marcel Granollers and pull out of the French Open.

The Scot and his team have carefully dealt with the complaint since then, and it did not prevent his run to Wimbledon glory in July.  Murray’s final match of the year was his straight-sets triumph over Ivan Dodig, which gave Britain an unassailable 3-1 lead in the Davis Cup.

This leaves the tantalizing question – who will play in the ATP World Tour Finals? Your thoughts?
