«My level of play and my condition are growing, I am convinced that the tournament will give me another great opportunity to continue climbing the rankings.» Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice President and CEO of the title sponsor of the tournament, commented on the choice: «Everyone knows how important Murray is to British tennis.

As we have seen from his previous seven appearances in our tournament, he always attracts a lot of passionate fans. We are very happy that he has accepted our invitation again.» Along with Andy Murray, the tournament also has two historical figures such as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal on its entry list.

The Serbian is already training in Marbella, Spain, with his mind set on this tournament, hoping for a miracle that will allow him to play the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami.
