"I also wanted to maybe wait and see how I felt after maybe playing a couple of matches and how I recover the next day".

Murray lost in the first round of the Australian Open in January before undergoing a hip resurfacing surgery that he hoped would ease the pain that had plagued him for the previous 20 months.

Andy Murray is now considering playing singles at Winston-Salem next week and he will play doubles in NY.

Murray said he does plan to enter both men's and mixed doubles at the US Open, the last Grand Slam of the year that starts at Flushing Meadows in a fortnight.

The Briton broke once again in the first game of the third set but then surrendered four successive games before fighting back to 4-4, only for Peterson to eventually emerge as a 6-3 3-6 7-5 victor.

The other member of the Big Three, Rafael Nadal, withdrew from the Masters event, citing fatigue after he won the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Sunday. Though the talented Murray brothers started off very well as they defeated the strong duo of Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin with the close margin of 6-4, 6-7 (7), 10-5. Kyrgios will face eighth-seeded Karen Khachanov.

Meanwhile, Johanna Konta was dumped out of the women's draw by Swedish qualifier Rebecca Peterson in a hard-fought encounter.

Not having playing singles tennis for several months had an obvious impact, he said.

Earlier Marin Cilic of Croatia became the first seed to fall when the 14th was eliminated by Radu Albot of Moldova 6-4 7-6 (6) and Serbia's Miomir Kecmanovic upset Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime 6-3 6-3.

Monday's last match, between 6-foot-11 Reilly Opelka and 12th-seeded Borna Coric, was suspended by rain with Coric leading 6-4, 3-6, 4-3.
