Murray announced that he intends to compete in the US Open and the French Open. Due to an injury, the three-time Grand Slam winner Murray last took part in a Grand Slam tournament at the Australia Open in January 2019. The 33-year-old said: “Playing the Grand Slam tournaments is my priority. The schedule is complicated, but of course, I understand why“. Asked on the one person rule for the US Open he said, “if I were told that I could only take one accompanying person with me, then I would probably take a physio trainer with me. You can coach from a distance“.
Murray plans to compete on the tournament in the USA, which starts on 31 August, as well as on the French Open, that is scheduled for 27 September.
