The Scot lost 6-4 6-4 to Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati on Monday in his first singles match since January and later said he would not accept a wild card for the men's draw at the US Open, the year's final Grand Slam.
Murray said that after playing doubles last week in Montreal and here in the USA, he's keen to return to his former life as a top singles player.
The three-time Grand Slam champion has been playing plenty of doubles - he won the Queen's title with Feliciano Lopez on his return to the circuit in June - but said he had made a decision to give it a miss at the US Open which gets underway on August 26.
"I'm not going to play doubles at the US Open", Murray explained.
Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery earlier this year to cure a career-threatening injury and eased himself back into things by competing in doubles events.
Murray, who reached the doubles quarter-finals with his partner Feliciano Lopez at the Cincinnati Open, told the BBC that he would play no part in next month's US Open in order to focus on his singles game. "The feeling I have had since my singles were that I played decently, but that physically between now and the end of the year I want to get matches in so that for the beginning of next year, I'm feeling ready".

"I need to focus my mind on getting matches on the singles court".
