Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka will lead an unusually strong field for the Marseille Open in February 2019, it has been confirmed.
The pair have committed to play in the ATP 250 series tournament – essentially the fifth tier on the ATP Tour after Grand Slams, ATP Finals, Masters 1000, and ATP 500.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, Kyle Edmund, Borna Coric, Hyeon Chung, Denis Shapovalov, and Karan Khachanov are also confirmed to be participating.

Home favourites Gael Monfils and Lucas Pouille will also play, as will three-time winner Jo-Willfried Tsonga.
The full list will be revealed in January, but it’s certainly rare that such a low-ranked tournament attracts a field so strong, especially given it’s timing between the Australian Open and Indian Wells.
