Cincinnati, Ohio (dpa) - Andy Murray‘s plan to split a private jet with Rafael Nadal to ensure a Monday arrival at the Cincinnati Masters was shelved on Sunday after the Scot won an historic second Olympic gold medal at the Rio Games.

The world number two came through in four hours over Argentine Juan Del Potro 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 in the final.

Murray then changed his travel arrangements, saying in his post-match interview that he would not jet out of Brazil in the evening after all as reported by the BBC.

"I was planning to travel tonight, but I think I‘ll stay around and celebrate," he said.

Murray takes the top Cincinnati seeding in the absence of Novak Djokovic, with Swiss player Stan Wawrinka on second. The 141st-ranked Del Potro cannot get into Cincinnati due to his ranking after two years of wrist surgeries and rehab.

Women‘s gold medalist Monica Puig pulled from Cincinnati with lower back pain less than 24 hours after she made history for Puerto Rico with a final win over German Angelique Kerber.

Puig captured the first gold medal ever at the Games for her the United States‘ Caribbean territory.

The 34th-ranked Puig was joined as an absentee by bronze medalist Petra Kvitova after the Czech withdrew with injury.
