Andy Murray will try to defend his title at the China Open, Beijing, ATP 500 event that will be played from 2 to 8 October 2017. The World No. 1 will make his fourth appearance there, and just last year he got his best result winning the title.
Andy who is still struggling with hip injury, doesn’t intend to take a long break from competition due to hip injury. He looked uncertain for the North American hard-court season where he is committed to play Montreal, Cincinnati and US Open.
Murray joins Nadal in the field, and many top players, maybe Novak Djokovic as well, could be announced in the next few weeks. ‘I am going to be coming back again this year in October to the China Open’, Murray said through a short statement.

On Saturday he landed to Switzerland to visit another hip specialist, and at the moment he is just taking a rest. This year Andy achieved his best results at Dubai winning the title, reached Doha final losing to Novak Djokovic and Roland Garros semifinals where he lost to Stan Wawrinka in five sets.
