Andy Murray has added another tournament to his end-of-year schedule as he has signed up for the 2019 Shanghai Masters.

The former world No 1, who hasn’t competed in any ATP Tour-level events since losing in the first round of the Winston-Salem Open in mid-August, is a three-time winner of the Asian Masters 1000 event.

He first won the tournament in 2010 and successfully defended the title the following season before tasting success again in 2016.

“I’m pleased to announce that this year I’ll be heading back to Shanghai,” Murray, who has confirmed that he is done with doubles for the time being, wrote on Facebook.

“I have always enjoyed the city and have some great success there over the years and I can’t wait to get back out there. Thanks to the tournament for the wild card, it’s great to be able to continue my comeback and play more tennis in China.”

The Shanghai Masters is one of four tournaments that Murray has so far confirmed he will play before the end of the 2019 campaign as he has also signed up for the Zhuhai Championships (September 23-29), the China Open (September 30-October 6), and the European Open (October 14-20).
