‘I want to get back to playing a sport I love’ – Andy Murray expected to get Miami wildcard


Andy Murray is expected to receive a wildcard entry into the Miami Open, which runs from March 24 – April 4. 

The three-time Grand Slam champion withdrew from this week’s Dubai Tennis Championships after he and his wife celebrated the birth of their fourth child on Friday.

While there is yet to be official confirmation from the Miami Open, have claimed that the 33-year-old “will get a wildcard entry.” Sky Sports also reported that the British star was expected to receive a wildcard for the Masters 1000 tournament after he pulled out of Dubai.

“It’s a city I love, and I’ve spent a lot of time here over the last 15 years, I feel comfortable,” Murray said of Miami in an interview with People.

“But over the next few months, I want to play matches – especially against the top players – work on my game and climb the rankings. I want to get back playing a sport I love.

“The last few years has been really hard. After the operation, there were no guarantees I would play again, but I’ve been working very hard on my conditioning and over the last few months I’ve felt the best I have for years.

“I’ll need to be mindful of my schedule moving forward but I’m excited to be back competing, with a metal hip.”

If Murray plays, it will be his first appearance at the Miami Open since 2016. It would also be the two-time champion’s first outing since the move from Crandon Park to the Hard Rock Stadium in 2019.
