Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has announced that he will be starting his 2023 season at the Adelaide International. Murray, 35, is set to debut at the Adelaide International. Murray, a former world No 1, last played at the Paris Masters – where he suffered a first round loss to Gilles Simon.
After taking a short rest, Murray kicked off his preparation for the 2023 season as he is looking forward to competing at the Adelaide International and Australian Open. “I’ll be starting the year in Australia, which I always really enjoy.
Playing at the Adelaide International for the first time is something I’m looking forward to. The crowds in Australia love their tennis and they’ve always been very supportive. I’ve been working hard in the off season and the Adelaide International will be great preparation for the Australian Open.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Adelaide and 2023 brings,” Murray said.
Murray on his 2023 schedule
Murray didn’t hide that he wasn’t really happy with his results in 2022. Going into the 2023 season, Murray revealed he plans to have a busy schedule.
After Australia, Murray plans to remain on hard until the clay season starts. Then, Murray will head to Great Britain for the grass season. “I’ve got a pretty busy schedule planned. I’ll be kicking off the year in Australia which I always really enjoy.
I’ll be playing a tournament out there, and then the Australian Open. After that I’ll be doing some more hard-court tournaments, then hopefully the clay, and then back to the UK for the grass-court season,” Murray revealed.
This year, Murray initially planned to skip the entire clay season. But after being handed a wildcard into the Madrid Masters, Murray changed his plans and played one clay tournament. In 2023, Murray plans to play on all three surfaces. It remains to be seen if Murray can kick off his 2023 season with a strong result in Adelaide.
