Andy Murray keeps updating his tournaments schedule. The British player will have a busy fall this year having entered in Zhuhai, Beijing, Shanghai and Antwerp and he already knows what will be his first event of the season.
Through his protected ranking of number two in the world, Murray entered in the ATP Cup that will take place in Australia from 3 to 12 January, joining Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic among the players who will compete there.
On Thursday, Murray had told reporters: "If I use my protected (ranking), I will play as the number one player. I think if you are playing in a competition like that, the best player should be picked to play. The Australian Open would be the priority for me.
And I don't want to go there and not play any matches. So, I am finding that quite a difficult choice to make." Murray may also play the Davis Cup finals in Madrid. He loves team events and he won the Davis Cup in 2015 being the leader of the team.
"I'm very pro team competitions in tennis, I just don't like the week that it (the ATP Cup) is in. ever have done. I don't like that there's two team competitions six weeks apart either. It just doesn't make sense."
Murray made his return to the competition in singles at last month's Winston Salem Open. He also played multiple doubles matches over the last three months.
