Andy Murray has joined Roger Federer in making a late withdrawal from next week’s ATP Tour event in Dubai after the birth of his fourth child.
The double Wimbledon champion and wife Kim, both 33, have quickly built a large family, with the latest arrival putting on hold the next stage of his latest comeback.
The Murrays are now a gang of six, with their latest baby welcomed into the world to join Sophia, Edie and Teddy.
Sophia is the eldest at five years of age, having been born in February 2016, while Edie is three and Teddy is one.

The couple, who started dating in 2005, have been married for nearly six years following their wedding in April 2015.
After gaining his first ATP Tour win of the year in Rotterdam last week – having been forced to miss the Australian Open after testing positive for Covid – the former world No 1 had intended to travel to Dubai.
However his management stated that, having been home for the new arrival, there would no longer be enough time for him to prepare properly.
Murray still intends to travel to Florida to play in the Miami Open, which begins on March 22, providing he is given a wildcard.

The Scot’s withdrawal is another blow to the Dubai event, after Federer pulled out late on Thursday night.
After his second round defeat to Nikoloz Basilashvili the Swiss believes he needs more time on the practice court.
He will not play in Miami and now has to decide which clay court events he might take part in during the Spring, with the longer term goal to be optimum shape for the grass court season.
