Andy Murray will follow up his singles comeback in Cincinnati by making his debut at the Winston-Salem Open next week.

Having undergone hip surgery at the end of January, the three-time Grand Slam winner played in his first singles match in nearly seven months at the Cincinnati Masters on Monday.

However, it was a brief appearance as he made a first-round exit, going down 6-4, 6-4 to Richard Gasquet of France.

Fans, though, won’t have to wait long for another Murray singles match as he has signed up for the Winston-Salem event, which gets underway on Sunday.

It will be the first time that the former world No 1 will compete in the ATP Tour tournament.

“Andy will be playing singles, but he will not be playing doubles,” Bill Oakes, tournament director for the North Carolina event, told Reuters.

“It’s amazing to have a guy who has won three Grand Slams, been ranked number one and may be the fiercest competitor coming to Winston-Salem.”
