Andy Murray Confirms He Would Play at the Australian Open in 2020


The former world number one, Andy Murray, announced yesterday that he would participate at the 2020 Australian Open in singles. This will be Murray’s first Grand Slam singles appearance after undergoing hip surgery in January this year.

The nature of the surgery made many tennis fans question whether Murray can play tennis at a high level ever again. Even Murray himself said that last year’s Australian Open could probably be his last one, as he dropped out of the first round and struggled with an injury. 

However, the Brit started his comeback gradually, mostly playing in doubles prior to the North American tour, and won a title at the Queen’s Club in England with his partner Feliciano Lopez. He recorded his first singles win in a long time on the Mallorca Challenger in August, but dropped in the third round.

Murray collected some wins on the Asian tour as well and is currently playing in Shanghai, where he beat the Argentine Londero in the first round. This was his first Masters 1000 win since Madrid in 2017.

Andy’s return to AO was confirmed on the tournament’s official Twitter page. Murray is a 5-time finalist at the Australian Open, and the 2020 tournament will be his 14th appearance in Melbourne.

Hi, I’m Stefan, and I live for sports. No… I’m serious, I literally live for sports. I grew up within a family unit where my mom was an avid tennis player, my father played football, and my uncles and aunts (all who visited us fairly regularly) played basketball and table tennis at a competitive level. So when we weren’t playing sports, we were watching it. And when we weren’t watching sports, we were listening to it on the radio in the car. So sports have always been a part of the fabric of not only my childhood, but also my adult life too. Personally, I can play most sports. But my favorite is tennis. Here at The Sporty, I’ll be using my all-rounder sports skills to bring you the latest and greatest from the world of sports. But I will also do my best to cover as much tennis related news as I can. So that’s me in a nutshell - game, set and match.
