'Very tired' Murray withdraws from Italian Open

A tired Andy Murray paid the price for his unexpected success on clay by withdrawing from the Italian Open.

The world number three had made it 10 wins in a row on Wednesday with a straight-sets victory over Frenchman Jeremy Chardy that put him into the last 16 in Rome.

I'm very tired just now and I need to take a break.

I didn't expect to do what I've done the past few weeks. My body has never been through that before on the clay. It's a surface I've always struggled on physically. My body's always found the surface difficult. This year, it's been very good.

I also don't want to risk making it worse; in the past, I've maybe trained too much. I wanted to play in this event. It's a big tournament, a lot of points on offer. The time of year is tough on everyone and it's just one of those things.

There's no long-term injuries to worry about. Things are a little bit stiff and sore because of the amount of matches I've played.

Newlywed Andy Murray declares 'marriage works'

Andy Murray has declared that "marriage works" after blasting his way to a second clay court title.

The Scot has enjoyed a strong run of form since he married his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears in front of family and friends at Dunblane Cathedral last month.

And yesterday he beat Rafael Nadal in straight sets to become the Mutua Madrid Open champion, claiming the 6-3 6-2 victory in less than 90 minutes in front of the clay king's Spanish fans.

After the game, the former Wimbledon champion wrote "Marriage Works!" on the lens of a television camera and told Sky Sports 3 that a happy personal life helps him perform better on the court.

It (marriage) has been nice and a lot of people have spoken about the honeymoon period.

But we've been together a very long time and getting married was the next step.

I've always said if the personal stuff is happy and under control that helps your performance on the court.

But I also feel healthy this year and I have trained well, I'm in much better shape on the clay than I have been for a number of years.

– Andy Murray

Murray won his first career clay court title at the Munich Open last Monday. He followed it up with yesterday's victory, which earned him the 10th 1000 Masters title of his career but his first such title on the red surface he has traditionally struggled on.

Andy and Kim, both 27, exchanged their vows in Murray's home town of Dunblane on Saturday April 11 in what was dubbed "Scotland's royal wedding".

The British tennis number one sported a blue and green kilt for the occasion while Sussex-born Sears wore an embroidered white gown with three-quarter-length sleeves and a long veil.

Andy Murray showed no ill-effects from his late finish in the previous round as he stormed through to the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open with a quick-fire victory over wild card Marcel Granollers.

The world number three did not seem bothered about having to play twice on the same day as he brushed aside Granollers 6-2 6-0 in 65 minutes.

Murray, who won the Madrid title in 2008 in the final year it was an indoor tournament before switching to clay, will now face either fifth seed Milos Raonic or Leonardo Mayer for a place in the last four.
