Andy Murray has pulled out of the Barcelona Open after failing to recover from the elbow injury he suffered in Monte Carlo.

Murray damaged the joint last Friday but managed to contest his semi-final against Rafael Nadal in the principality the following day, losing in three sets to the world number one.

He flew out to Barcelona in the hope the injury would clear up but he has now been advised to take four to five days' rest.
