Andy Murray has withdrawn from next week's Shanghai Masters 1000.

The world number three has not sufficiently recovered from an injury to his left wrist which forced him to miss this week's Japan Open in Tokyo.

A statement on Murray's official website, www.andymurray.com, read: "Due to medical advice Andy will not be travelling to China.

"He has decided to give his wrist extra time to recover and is likely to return for the Valencia Open."

The Valencia Open gets under way on 2 November, giving Murray almost another month to fully recover from the injury.

Murray has not played since Great Britain's Davis Cup defeat by Poland in Liverpool on September 20. Murray aggravated the injury in that loss, although he still completed two singles and one doubles match in that tie.
