Andy Murray has decided not to participate in doubles at the US Open in order to continue his comeback in singles events.

The 2012 US Open champion had intended to be involved in doubles and mixed doubles at Flushing Meadows later this month but has now revealed that “doubles is done for the time being”.

Murray will instead play singles at the Winston-Salem Open and is considering entering a tournament on the Challenger Tour during the US Open which begins on August 26.

The 32-year-old accepted a wildcard into Winston-Salem and will join British No 1 Dan Evans in the draw.
