ROME (Reuters) – Former world number one Andy Murray will compete in a challenger tournament in Biella next month following his Australian Open withdrawal, the Italian Tennis Federation confirmed on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray was forced to pull out of the first major of 2021 in Melbourne after he was unable to find what he called a ‘workable quarantine’ following a positive COVID-19 test on January 14.

The indoor tournament in Biella, which begins on February 15 and has 132,000 euros ($159,918) of prize money, will mark the 33-year-old’s first appearance at a challenger event since competing in Mallorca in August 2019.

Murray now ranked 123 in the world after battling his way back from two hip operations, could face the likes of world number 54 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and number 74 Lucas Pouille.
