Andy Murray sobs after 3-set win in Washington

If his body can take it, Murray plays for a semifinal spot in Friday's last match against 72ndranked De Minaur, who pulled two upsets on Thursday after rain, dumping U.S. 11th seed Steve Johnson 6-4 7-5 and South Korean eighth seed Chung Hyeon 6-2 4-6 6-2.

"Just the emotions coming at the end of an extremely long day and a long match", Murray, 31, said of his reaction to the Copil match, after which he sat crying into his towel for several minutes.

Germany's third-ranked Zverev, seeking his fifth final of the season and third title of the year after Munich and Madrid, dispatched seventh-seed Nishikori, the 2015 champion, as he did in last year's Washington semi-finals.

Murray, who finished his previous match at 3AM in the morning before sobbing his way out of the court, couldn't go on any further and announced his withdrawal.

Murray said: "Sadly, I won't be able to take my place in the draw in Toronto".

Asked after beating Copil how his body is holding up, Murray replied: "It doesn't feel great, just now".

Australian Alex De Minaur, another 19-year-old, reached the semi-finals by walkover when Murray withdrew, citing the fatigue of three grueling three-set wins that kept him on the court more than eight hours in total.

An emotional Murray was in tears after the victory and said afterwards he thought it was "unreasonable" to ask a player to finish a match so late and then be expected to play again the following day.

Tournament Director Keely O'Brien added: "I am so grateful that Andy, an incredible champion, came back to D.C.to begin what we all know will be a great comeback. I don't think it's reasonable", Murray said. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

"I'm disappointed with that, because I know that the weather's tricky and I know it is for the scheduling, but it's a very hard position to be in". By the time you're done with all your recovery and stuff, it's going to be 5:30, 6 o'clock in the morning. On Monday, he didn't play his opening-round match until 10pm because of a five-hour rain delay.

When he got to the sideline after the match concluded, he covered his face with a towel and cried, his chest heaving.

Murray's third-round victory over Marius Copil ended just past 3 a.m. on Friday, after rain delayed the start of Thursday's action for 2 1/2 hours.
