London - Andy Murray is to take a two-week break to rest his injured left wrist but a scan has ruled out the long-term damage the Scot feared.

Murray, who has been carrying the injury since the Cincinnati Masters last month, had expressed concern that he could have aggravated it by playing three matches for Great Britain in the Davis Cup defeat by Poland at the weekend.

But a consultation with a specialist has reassured Murray and he is hoping to return to action at the Japan Open from October 5, a spokesperson for his agents said.
