  3. 'He needs to be 100% fit. It's no good for him to be 75%'

    Tennis

    Speaking after Murray's Wimbledon exit in July, BBC Sport pundit and six-time Grand Slam winner Boris Becker previously advised Murray to consider skipping the US Open.

    "Age is only a number, but you only have one body. Andy has to look after his," said Becker.

    "He has got to think long term, not worry about making the US Open - if he is moving there like he did at Wimbledon, then he won't win it anyway.

    "So, the worst thing that can happen if he skips New York is that he misses one Grand Slam - that doesn't matter, because the Australian Open is around the corner at the start of 2018."

    Becker said Murray could learn from Nadal and Roger Federer, both of whom took long breaks from the game before returning fitter.

    Nadal pulled out of the French Open in May 2016 with a wrist injury and did not play again until the Rio Olympics in August. He won his 10th title at Roland Garros earlier this year.

    Federer missed the final five months of 2016 to recover from his knee injury but returned to win the Australian Open in January and Wimbledon in July.

    "With this injury, there are limitations to Andy's movement," said Becker. "Andy relies on his speed and footwork, which are an integral part of his game.

    "That is why he needs to be 100% fit. It's no good for him to be 75%."

    In a statement posted on social media, Murray did not mention the ATP World Tour Finals which will be held in London in November but he did say he will start his 2018 season in Brisbane in preparation for the Australian Open, following a "frustrating year on court for many reasons".

    "I'm confident after this extended period of rest and rehabilitation that I will be able to reach my best level again and be competing for Grand Slam titles next season," he said.

    More on this story...

    A Leicester spokesman said: "We are working with Adrien and Sporting Clube de Portugal to overcome some issues relating to the player's registration and exploring all options to find a resolution."

    The club own Silva but points of the deal were not completed adequately meaning they are required to pay his wages until they can attempt to register him again in January.

    France-born Silva, 28, is a product of Sporting's academy and has had loan spells at Maccabi Haifa and Academica.

    Fifa rejects Leicester's application for Silva

    Fifa has rejected Leicester City's application to register midfielder Adrien Silva after the club missed the deadline by 14 seconds.

    The Foxes signed the midfielder from Sporting Lisbon for £22m but finalised parts of the deal near the close of the summer transfer window on 31 August.

    Silva's registration was not completed in time with football's governing body meaning he is ineligible until January.

    Leicester are in the process of trying to appeal against the decision.
