Three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray is one of the greatest British players to have played the game. The Scot enjoyed a fair amount of success, not just individually, but also while representing Great Britain on grand stages like the Olympic Games and the Davis Cup.
In the present season, Andy was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open as he tested positive for COVID-19. The protocol issued for the Australian Open states that players will have to self-isolate themselves for a period of 14 days. Due to this, it would’ve been difficult for Andy to complete this procedure.
However, there is a positive update with regard to Andy’s comeback on Tour. The Scot will be seen this season at the ATP Challenger event in Biella in Italy. The tournament will be played from February 15 and will go on till the 21st of that month. It happens to take place during the second week of the Australian Open.
It will be a good opportunity for the British player to go the distance. Winning there will give him the confidence to have a successful year ahead, as the season has just begun.
In recent years, Andy has been out of form due to the hip injury he suffered in 2017. In the past three seasons, he has skipped seven Grand Slam events as he was still recovering from the surgery. Also, in the few events that he played in, the Scot never managed to go past the second round.
Prior to that, Andy won Wimbledon on two occasions, in 2013 and 2016. He won his first Major at the 2012 US Open. It will be one of the greatest comebacks if Andy can get back to competing against the best players on Tour.
