Murray Continues Comeback In Winston-Salem; When Is The Draw & More
Andy Murray headlines the field at the Winston-Salem Open, an ATP 250 tournament held the week prior to the US Open. The former World No. 1 made his return to singles action this week at the Western & Southern Open for the first time since undergoing hip surgery in January.
"I've taken the wild card to play Winston-Salem. It'll be my first time playing there. I've spoken to quite a few of the players who have played there and have heard they've got great facilities there for practice and the matches," said Murray. "What I need now is matches. I want to get myself back on the singles court and keep testing myself. Winston-Salem is a perfect place for me to do that."
Murray joins the likes of top seed Benoit Paire, Denis Shapovalov, Sam Querrey, Frances Tiafoe and Tomas Berdych in the field. Here's all you need to know about the Winston-Salem tennis tournament: what is the schedule, where to watch, who has won and more.
