Having several records under his name, the former World No.1 Andy Murray has struggled to find his form since his comeback after a hip surgery. However, the two-time Wimbledon champion has already begun the 2021 season with a final run at the Biella Challenger Indoor 1.

At the beginning of the 2021 season, Murray received a wild card for the Australian Open, but he did not travel to Melbourne because of the COVID-19 contraction. 

Having an intention to build a strong start in the 2021 season, the two-time Olympic Gold medalist is now playing back-to-back ATP events in Montpellier and Rotterdam
