He has, however, travelled to the United States where he has stepped up his comeback bid, beating Mackenzie McDonald in the first round of the Washington Open on Monday.
He is also scheduled to play the Cincinnati Open after being granted a wildcard, and looks a good bet to tackle the US Open too.
Murray is a former winner in Beijing, which he won in 2016 as part of a surge towards becoming world number one.
