The former world number one lost 6-4 6-4 to Gasquet as he stepped up his preparations for the US Open which begins on August 26.
But after the match, Murray announced that he will not be competing in the mens singles at the Grand Slam in New York.
However, the 32-year-old confirmed he plans to play doubles and mixed doubles at the tournament.
Im not going to play the US Open singles, Murray said after his loss to Gasquet.
You know, we were hoping to maybe hold a wildcard until a little bit close to the time to see how I feel and get some matches hopefully and a bit of practice, but they were announcing the wildcards today and didnt want to wait.
I didnt want to take a wildcard today because I just didnt know how I was going to feel after a match.
I felt like I wanted to be fair for me to, you know, maybe try and get a couple of matches in before making a decision like that.
