Andy Murray will have a busy schedule for the first quarter of the year. After the Australian swing that will feature him competing at the Brisbane International and Australian Open, Murray will be back in Europe to make his first appearance ever at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier from 3 to 10 February 2019.
Murray also committed to the Marseille Open, and in the middle he may play the ABN Amro Open in Rotterdam as well. Through his official Facebook account, Murray wrote: 'Lots of great memories playing indoors in France, looking forward to playing Open Sud de France in Montpellier for the first time next year.' Murray is currently world No.
264 and will take a main draw wild card to play both in Montpellier and Marseille. In March he is set to compete in Indian Wells and Miami as well. The 31-year-old cameback to competition this year after a 11-month break at the Queen's Club, losing to Nick Kyrgios.
Murray ended his season at the Shenzhen Open, China, in late September due to an ankle injury and the need to recover properly from all his physical issues. His last match was the win against David Goffin in the Shenzhen second round.
He would then withdraw from his quarter-finals match against Fernando Verdasco. Meanwhile Stefanos Tsitsipas was asked what was the first time he played with ball boys giving him the towel: 'I think it was my first Masters as a junior, Tennis Europe.
It was somewhere in Italy I played. It was Tennis Europe Masters. I don't remember where. Calabria or something? Is there a place like this? Reggio Calabria, I think it was the Masters there. I think they had ball kids for the very first time.
That's when. It's a habit when you have this for almost your entire life.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer explains why he is not the greatest player ever
