Craig Tiley, the director of the Australian Open recently announced and confirmed the rumors that former World Top ranker is set to participate in the 2020 Australian Open tournament.
Andy seems to have reverted to his top-form after having undergone a career-saving hip surgery earlier in 2019. He proved this by taking part in the men’s doubles event with Feliciano Lopez and winning the title at the Queen’s Club event, in June this year.
Last year, the 2019 Australian Open was the same time that Andy Murray, who is only 32, was incredibly emotional when he announced to the disappointment and sympathy of his fans that he would probably retire after the tournament due to the chronic pain he felt during the long, tough matches. However, after having undergone a successful hip resurfacing surgery in January 2019, Andy Murray fans were thrilled to hear that the two-time Wimbledon champion would return so soon to perform at the beginning of next year in the 2020 Australian Open.
Tiley made the announcement on an interview with Triple M radio station last week on Tuesday quoting, “For sure Andy will be here. I was on the phone to his agent this morning. He is going to be in Australian early.” Tiley further stated that Andy is eager to return and thanks to the successful hip surgery he is fit to play in the opening season of the Grand Slam tournament in 2020.
Fans were quite happy to see the Andy finish at the runners-up spot five times in the Melbourne Park. However, the Scottish favorite showed an under-powered performance in the 2019 Australian Open, which he predicted even before the tournament started, stating the debilitating pain in his hip.
Fans are thrilled with the exciting prospect of seeing the exciting Scot mark his territory again on the court this upcoming 2020 Australian Open tournament.
