British tennis legend Andy Murray says he won't be playing in the singles draw at the US Open later this month.

The two-time Wimbledon champion was beaten 6-4,6-4 by France's Richard Gasquet at the Cincinnati Masters on Monday evening.

It was his first singles matches for seven months after he had had major hip surgery in January.

He told reporters after the match that he expects to be "fully recovered" by January 2020, which will be a year since his last operation.
