Tennis: Murray adds European Open to his schedule


Andy Murray has added the European Open in Antwerp – which begins on October 14 – to his schedule as he continues his singles comeback.

Murray lost back-to-back matches inCincinnati and Winston-Salem to Richard Gasquet and Tennys Sangren, but he did come through both tests uninjured.

In his pursuit for further game time, the former world number one has already agreed to participate in events in Zhuhai Championships and the China Open as he potentially builds up to playing at the Shanghai Masters in October.

Murray, who is currently ranked 329 in the world, has hinted he may drop down to Challenger level which could begin by playing at the Rafa Nadal Open next week.

“I’m quite aware of where I’m at just now and what my level is,” he said after losing 7-6 7-5 to Sangren at the Winston-Salem Open last week.

“It’s competitive at this level but it needs to be better

Fellow Brit Kyle Edmund won his first ATP Tour title at the European Open last year.
