Andy Murray is returning to the desert this month.
Murray, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, will compete in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship from February 21 to 26.
Murray will make his first appearance in Dubai since defeating Fernando Verdasco to win the 2017 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship. Murray has a track record in Dubai, having defeated then-world No. 1 Roger Federer in his first appearance there in 2008.
Murray will compete alongside world number one Novak Djokovic, Andrey Rublev, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Jannik Sinner, and defending champion Aslan Karatsev. Due to the fact that Dubai does not need players to get vaccinated in order to compete, Djokovic will be able to make his ATP début in Dubai this month.
