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.
For the first time ATP Tour appearance since October 2020, the 33-years-old man from Scotland will now face Belarusian Egor Gerasimov in the first round of the Open Sud de France on 22th February.
Andy Murray Awarded a Wildcard For Rotterdam Open 2021
On the other hand, the 2012 US Open title winner awarded a wildcard for the 48th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, which is scheduled to run from 1 to 7 March in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
In 2009, the No.2 seeded Andy Murray lifted the Rotterdam title after defeating No.1 seeded Rafael Nadal in the championship match.
“Andy is, of course, on his way back from a lingering injury. We want to offer him the opportunity to take another step in his comeback,” said tournament director Richard Krajicek.
Rotterdam Open chief continued, “With his honours list and his unique performances at Wimbledon, among others, he is one of the audience’s favourites.”
