"Andy Murray"Britain top seed, Andy Murray has finally decided to pull-out of the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, which favors Roger Federer to complete the 2011 Season at No.3 Ranking in ATP and the Serbian, Janko Tipsarevic to get into London finals.

Murray had an excellent Asian Swing in October wining back to back titles in Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai Masters to overcome Federer in the top-3 of the ATP-Rankings. However, Murray has been struggling form the Groin injury from the Basel tournament and finally ended-up the season being pulled out of the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Top seed Britain was just 710-points ahead of Federer, before the London finals. If Murray had competed in the remaining 2-Round Robin encounters against Djokovic and Berdych, he would have been ended the top-3 this year.

Murray, who has been struggling from the groin injury in his first round robin match against Ferrer has said that, It’s just a really difficult decision to make because it’s one of the best tournaments in the year to play and it’s something that you also work all year to play here, as well and added that, There was no real positive sort of coming out and playing because yesterday I was really unhappy on the court.

Murray further revealed, I couldn’t give anywhere near my best, so that’s what was disappointing. It would probably do myself more damage by playing.

Andy Murray withdrawal will give an opportunity for the Serbian, Janko Tipsarevic in the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

So with one top seed withdraw, it will be an advantage Roger Federer and Janko Tipsarevic to stroll in the London finals.
