‘We have reserved a wild card for him’ – Andy Murray adds another tournament to his schedule
Comeback kid Andy Murray looks set to play Vienna this year after it was claimed that they have ‘reserved’ a wild card for him.
Murray won the tournament the last time he played in 2016, but has since sufferer a serious hip injury from which he is only just now working his way back.
That comeback trail, though, looks like it will run through Vienna.

Murray himself has been hesitant to publicly commit to what his schedule will be.
He has completed a pretty successful Asian swing of the Tour now and is confirmed to play Antwerp next.
“I’ll see a little bit with my team after Antwerp, sit down and have a chat with my team about what it is I want to do between now and the end of the season,” Murray said two weeks ago.
This year, although I’ve not been playing, it’s been tough. It’s been a full-on year of, like, rehab. It’s not like I had sort of six, seven months off.
I need to make sure I get some breaks in there, as well, to kind of recharge, spend time at home with my family. Yeah, I’ll see.
“My plan just now is still to play through Antwerp, then hopefully, provided I’m selected, play in the Davis Cup.”
