Murray set for Antwerp in October

21st August 2019, 14:56 by Gareth Freeman

Andy Murray will compete in the ATP European Open in Antwerp in October as he steps up his return from hip surgery.

Murray has been playing in doubles recently after a five-month stint on the sidelines following a hip resurfacing operation after the Australian Open.

The Scot landed the men's doubles title at Queen's Club alongside Feliciano Lopez and played in mixed doubles at Wimbledon with Serena Williams, but he now says he is "done" with doubles for the time being and wants to focus on singles.

Murray has been happy with his displays in his singles assignments so far, despite first-round exits at the Cincinnati Masters and Winston-Salem Open this month, but he decided against competing in the US Open.

The three-time Grand Slam winner could enter an event on the Challenger Tour in the coming weeks and he will be involved in the Zhuhai Championships and the China Open next month when the ATP Tour heads to Asia.

The 32-year-old former world number one has now lined up the European Open in Antwerp in October as he steps up his recovery and it will be the first time he has played in that tournament.
