It's not good for the players, not good, I don't think, for anyone involved in the event.

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".

He's scheduled to face 19-year-old Alex de Minaur of Australia in the quarterfinals Friday night.

"Not playing, potentially, is possible. And 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".

"I'll try to sleep as late as I can but with your body clock you might get a few hours sleep".

"I won't be able to play my match tonight. I'm not sure how well I'll recover from that".

O'Brien said: "I hope that Andy really takes into consideration this role in his sport and as a global role model to guys and girls on the tour and kids around the world that, when things are hard and tough and the conditions aren't great, it's not OK to just give up". Certainly, if he can't play because of his injury, that's one thing. "It's a handsome thing to see", he said. At the very least, he doesn't feel it should have to be a decision he has to make.

The former world No. 1 had to dig deep after conceding a 5-0 advantage in the first-set tie break to lose 7-5, but Murray twice broke Copil in the second set to force a decider.

Norrie won almost three-quarters of his first serve points as he dismissed the fourth seed and world number 25 to reach his second successive ATP Tour semi-final.

Tsitsipas, 19, took one of the biggest victories of his young career by ousting Goffin in 74 minutes.

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.

Tsitsipas, who reached his first ATP final in May at Barcelona but lost to Rafael Nadal, says he won't change to face Zverev.

Zverev bounced back after dropping the opening set to overhaul the seventh-seeded Japanese 3-6 6-1 6-4, eliminating him from the tournament for the second consecutive year.

On the women's side, two-time Grand Slam victor Svetlana Kuznetsova was to face Kazak eighth seed Yulia Putintseva for a semi-final spot.

An emotional Andy Murray sobbed into his towel on the side of the court after a grueling victory over world No. 93 Marius Copil in Washington - a game that finished at 3 a.m. Friday local time.

But the effort took a toll.
