Former World No. 1 Andy Murray will play in a singles draw for the second time since his hip resurfacing surgery, accepting a wild card into the Winston-Salem Open, an ATP 250 tournament that starts Sunday.

Murray began his singles comeback in Cincinnati, where he lost to eventual semi-finalist Richard Gasquet. This will mark Murray’s first time playing in Winston-Salem, the ATP 250 Tournament Of The Year in 2016. The 32-year-old Briton will open his campaign against US-American Tennys Sandgren.

The top seed at this event is Frenchman Benoit Paire, who will try to lift his third ATP Tour trophy of the season. The second seed, #NextGenATP Canadian Denis Shapovalov, will pursue his maiden tour-level crown.
