Andy Murray is to become a father for a third time with the former world No 1 confirming that the baby could arrive in the next few days, which will force him to tweak his schedule.

The 32-year-old is due to play in the European Open in Antwerp next week, but he has revealed in an interview that there will be a new addition to the family in the coming days.

He initially contemplated playing in the Stockholm Open, which runs at the same time as Antwerp, but chose the Belgian event as it is a shorter flight home.

If his wife Kim does give birth next week and he is forced to skip the European Open, then he will consider signing up for the Paris Masters, which starts on October 28.

“Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week,” he told The Times. “I would adjust my schedule if I couldn’t go to Antwerp. My plan is to play Antwerp and then I am done through to the Davis Cup. If the baby came early, I would miss Antwerp and then maybe play at the Paris Masters.”
