Andy Murray will decide next week whether he will participate in the ATP World Tour Finals at London's O2 Arena.

However, it seems likely that he will pull out of the season finale as he bids to recover from a back operation he underwent last month.

The Scot will take part in the Dream Cup in Barbados, an exhibition event set for November 28 and to feature Juan Martin del Potro, Nicolas Almagro and Richard Gasquet.

Murray missed the French Open as a result of the back problem, and after suffering a shock defeat to Stanislas Wawrinka to relinquish his US Open crown decided to undergo a procedure on a disc.

The British No. 1 is expected to join coach Ivan Lendl in Miami to begin his preparations for the 2014 campaign in mid-November.
