Andy Murray - US Open 2023

Andy Murray Schedule: Where is the three-time Grand Slam champion attempting to return to form?

Andy Murray has been struggling for form in recent months, epitomised by his straight sets first round defeat at the Australian Open. But, can the three-time major winner have one final surge in the latter stages of his incredible career?

Murray has lost eight of his last nine matches, with the most recent coming earlier this week to Benoit Paire in Montpellier.

Following this defeat, some media outlets were questioning whether it was the beginning of the end of Murray’s 19-year professional career.

However, Murray defiantly responded and revealed that he ‘won’t quit’ without a fight, which is backed up by his busy schedule over the next couple of months.
