Murray had an operation on his long-standing back problem last month and was always expected to miss the Nov. 4-11 event, which features the world's top eight singles players. Murray played in the last five ATP finals and reached the semifinals twice. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer are the three players who have qualified with four weeks remaining in the season.
