Andy Murray granted wildcard entry to San Diego Open

Former World No.1 Andy Murray has been granted a wildcard entry to the San Diego Open, an ATP 250 tournament that will take place from September 27-0ctober 03 2021.

The three-time Grand Slam champion will be making his return to the city of San Diego, after leading Great Britain to victory over Team USA in a first-round Davis Cup tie in 2014.

"I have great memories of that Davis Cup tie," said Murray. "It was a great experience playing in a baseball stadium. San Diego is a really nice city and I’m looking forward to going back there later this month for the San Diego Open.”

Ryan Redondo, the San Diego Open tournament director, made the announcement, stating "With the addition of Murray, a former World No. 1 player, the field for this tournament is spectacular. This is going to be an incredible week of men’s professional tennis and I encourage fans to purchase their tickets as soon as possible.”

Several Top 20 players have already been announced for the event, including Andrey Rublev, Denis Shapovalov, Casper Ruud and Felix Auger-Aliassime.
