Because his wife Kim is currently expecting the couples third child in the forthcoming weeks, andy Murray will take a hiatus.
Murray is planning a break but he is prepared reunite should Kim go into a young labour and to depart Antwerp.
Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week. Id adjust my schedule if I could not go to Antwerp, the former world No 1 told The Times.
My plan is to perform Antwerp and then Im done through to the Davis Cup (November 18-25). In case the baby came , I would miss Antwerp and maybe play at the Paris Masters (October 26-November 3).
The 32-year-old has returned to singles competition after having a career-saving hip resurfacing operation.
A rush into the quarter-finals of the China Open last week – where world No 5 Dominic Thiem beat him – has been followed with a defeat to world No 12 Fabio Fognini at the Shanghai Masters.
Murray is happy with his progress and the three-time Grand Slam winner is hopeful of being able to contend with the world going.
He added:Im surprised with how eloquent (my yield ) was. I had two decades of having plenty of pain. I play a match, the entire body hurts, I still have some pain in my spine, the muscles are exhausted and things like this, but my hip is still nice and that I couldnt remember what that was like previously.
I have been aggressive up to now. I will get on the market if I could keep advancing a few things then maybe theres an outside chance.
I want to be competitive in the huge occasions against the best players. Im not there yet, but I am closer than I had been a month ago, and much closer than a few months ago.
Murray is the first player to come back to the singles match following his type of surgery, though Bob Bryan has managed to keep his profession after a procedure that is similar.
If he suffer another injury to the area, however, Murray would be ready to call it a day.
I know that it is not very important when or where I finish my career, he explained. If I had an alternative hip injury, I probably would not continue. My trendy might break and that could be it. I would be completed if this occurred.
However, there is not any indication of that happening anytime soon. It appears to be getting more powerful all the time.
