Andy Murray to start season in Australia for next three years

Andy Murray to start season in Australia for next three years



 

Andy Murray has not been playing in the second half of the season, but he has clear goals for the future. The three-time Grand Slam champion aims to have a long career and signed a three-year contract with Tennis Australia to start the season in Australia in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Murray, who turned 30 earlier this year in May, will play in Brisbane in the first week of 2018, but in the following two years it may change as by 2019 a new World Cup team competition is set to be introduced in the tennis calendar, and it should be probably played in Australia, with ATP points and prize money at stake.

The Scots tennis ace posted a video on Saturday night with the caption: “Slowly but surely getting there,” and followed it up with a clip on Sunday evening saying: “Can’t wait to get back on the match court competing… I miss it so much.”



Murray announced in September his decision to take a break from tennis in a bid to sort out his troublesome hip. Murray has not completely ruled out a return to the courts before the year is out, although did say that he would not be ‘able to compete in Beijing and Shanghai, and most likely, the final two events in Vienna and Paris’. While taking a decision not to undergo surgery on his hip, Murray confirmed he would be participating in an extensive rehabilitation course to try and cure his issues. He said in September: “Although this has been a frustrating year on court for many reasons, I’m confident that after this extended period of rest and rehabilitation that I will be able to reach my best level again and be competing for Grand Slam titles next season.” Murray is targeting a playing return on 31 December at the Brisbane International, but is set to appear at his charity event at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on 7 November against Roger Federer in an exhibition match.

Ball still coming out the middle😉 can't wait to get back on the match court competing.. I miss it so much 💔🙏🎾🎾 thanks to @theawardd for the rhythm

‘Starting the year in Australia sets you up in the best possible way for a strong season and I’m excited to start my next three there’, said through a statement Murray, who played in Brisbane in 2012 and 2013, winning two titles.

‘I love coming to Australia and the Brisbane tournament always has a strong field. I’m confident it will help me prepare for the Australian Open.
