Zhuhai (China), June 15 Dual-Wimbledon champion Andy Murray confirmed he will return to China to compete in 2023 ATP Zhuhai Championships in September.
The three-time major winner will join fellow US Open champion and former world No.1 Daniil Medvedev at the 2023 Zhuhai Championships held from September 20 to September 26.
The ATP Tour 250 event marks Murray’s second visit to Zhuhai. Murray won the title in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2019, Xinhua reported.
“It’s great to be playing tennis in China again and I am really looking forward to coming back to play at the Hengqin International Tennis Centre,” Murray said.
