Andy Murray to start the new year in Brisbane
Three-time Grand Slam champion and world No.2 Andy Murray (GBR) will start 2018 at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp.
The 30-year-old plans to start his next three years in Australia as part of a long term partnership with Tennis Australia to help promote the sport.
Murray confirmed today he would take some time off to get healthy.
“I need to take some time to rest my body and I look forward to playing the Brisbane International in January,” Murray said. “Starting the year in Australia sets you up in the best possible way for a strong season and I’m excited to start my next three there. I love coming to Australia and the Brisbane tournament always has a strong field. I’m confident it will help me prepare for the Australian Open,”
Brisbane International Tournament Director Geoff Quinlan is pleased Murray and also Rafael Nadal have committed early to the event and anticipates this to be the beginning of an exceptionally strong field.
“We are delighted Andy, a past champion, has chosen to start 2018 at the Brisbane International,” Quinlan said. “Next year will mark the 10th edition of the tournament and what better way to celebrate by featuring the top two men in the world, we couldn’t be more pleased.”
