Andy Murray has taken a wild card into the Miami Open. The former World No. 1, currently ranked 118, has only mustered a 4-6 record since the start of 2020. He became a father last week for the fourth time, and therefore was force to pull out of this week’s Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships draw.

"It's a city I love, and I've spent a lot of time here over the last 15 years, I feel comfortable," Murray told People Magazine. "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 Miami Open main draw will be held early next week.

Murray is a two-time champion (2009 and 2013) at Miami, and has reached two additional finals.

The three-time Grand Slam champion underwent hip resurfacing surgery in 2019 and since then has worked tirelessly to return to form.

“It is exciting to see Andy back in Miami,” said James Blake, Miami Open Tournament Director. “As someone who has had to battle back from injury during his career, I understand and respect all the hard work Andy has put in to get back on tour.”
