Andy Murray confirms participation in next week's ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam
Murray looks to have come through the Australian Open and Davis Cup unscathed and could face fellow top-seeds Juan Martin Del Potro and Tomas Berdych
Friday 07 February 2014
Andy Murray has been confirmed as an entrant for next week's ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.
The Wimbledon champion has been given a wildcard for the event, which is also set to feature Juan Martin Del Potro - the defending champion - and Tomas Berdych.
The Scot's entry suggests his back remains in a good condition following his return from surgery and a gruelling schedule over the last month consisting of the Australian Open and the Davis Cup.
Murray is scheduled to play in Acapulco later this month before the higher-profile tournaments of Indian Wells and Miami.
"Last week I contacted Andy Murray and his management," said Rotterdam tournament director Richard Krajicek.
"Because he didn't have a tournament planned between Australian Open and Acapulco and came back from Australia free from physical issues, it seemed like a good idea to both of us if he came to Rotterdam.
"After consultation with his coach Ivan Lendl he decided. Obviously this is a great addition to our already very strong field. An excellent opportunity."
