Andy Murray (illness) WDs from match vs. Novak Djokovic

Britain’s Andy Murray was forced to withdraw from his Round of 16 match against world No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Thursday at the Mutua Madrid Open in Spain with an illness.

The announcement came about an hour before the match was scheduled to begin. The Telegraph reported Murray has a case of food poisoning.

The match would have been the 37th meeting — first since 2017 — between Murray and Serbia’s Djokovic, who holds a 25-11 lead in the contests.

Djokovic wins in a walkover and will face the winner of Hubert Hurkacz vs. Dusan Lajovic in the quarterfinals on the clay at Madrid.
