Andy Murray officially accepted a wildcard into the Winston-Salem singles event which begins next week.
Murray, who made his singles return Monday in a loss to Richard Gasquet, wants more matches.
“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.
“I know from speaking to players who have played there that the site is great,” said Murray. “Good facilities for practice, gym, the weather will be good from what I’ve seen. It’s another step for me in the comeback and we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully I can have a good run.”
Tomas Berdych, Andrey Rublev, Sam Querrey, Denis Shapovalov and Frances Tiafoe are also in the field.
Murray and Feliciano Lopez will be in doubles play Friday in Cincinnati against his brother Jamie and Neil Skupski.
