Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray pulled out of the $2.649 million Rogers Cup tennis event, citing a left knee injury.

The British star suffered the injury while chasing down a forehand shot in his Wednesday victory on the hardcourts at Toronto's Rexall Centre.

The second-seeded Murray was scheduled to battle 16th-seeded rising Canadian favorite Milos Raonic on Thursday, but Raonic, instead, moved into the quarterfinals via walkover.

Murray, who's a two-time Rogers Cup champion, upset Roger Federer in this past Sunday's marquee men's singles gold-medal match at the All England Club, where the British star lost to the Swiss great in the Wimbledon finale last month.
