Andy Murray brings early end to nightmare Asian swing, but adds new tournament to his calendar

Andy Murray Ends Asian Swing Early Due to Poor Results

The former world No 1, Andy Murray, has decided to cut short his Asian swing due to a series of disappointing outcomes. Since the start of the hard-court season in July, Murray has won only five matches and suffered six defeats, including a walkover to Jannik Sinner at the Canadian Open due to injury.

Murray’s performance in the Asian swing has been less than impressive, with only one win out of four matches. His most recent loss came in the first round of the Shanghai Masters, where he was defeated 6-3, 6-2 by Roman Safiullin.

Although Murray was expected to continue his outdoor hard-court campaign at the Japan Open, he has withdrawn from the ATP 500 event in Tokyo for undisclosed reasons. However, his 2023 season is not yet over as he has added the Moselle Open to his schedule.

Next, Murray is set to participate in the Swiss Indoors, an ATP 500 event taking place from October 23-30, and the Paris Masters. Last year, Murray competed in Basel, defeating Safiullin in his opener before losing to sixth seed Roberto Bautista Agut in the second round.

The Swiss event will be followed by the Paris Masters, where Murray lost in the first round last year. Afterward, he will conclude his regular ATP Tour season on the outdoor hard courts in France.

Former French player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, one of the tournament’s shareholders, has praised Murray, stating, “He’s a player who has been with me throughout my career. He’s won almost everything, and I can’t wait to see him on the courts here.”

Murray won’t be the only notable player in the ATP 250 main draw at the Moselle Open. Casper Ruud and Holger Rune, both top-10 players, as well as three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka and world No 11 Alex de Minaur, have also confirmed their participation.

Outside of the Moselle Open, Murray will wrap up his 2023 campaign at the Davis Cup Finals in Malaga, Spain, representing Great Britain against Serbia in the quarter-finals.
