STARNBERG, August 23, 2021

Former World No. 1 Andy Murray is competing in his sixth tour-level tournament of the season this week as he headlines a stacked field at the Winston-Salem Open in North Carolina.

The Scot, who is making his second appearance at the ATP 250 event, will be looking to gain further momentum after reaching the second round in Cincinnati last week. Murray beat US-American lucky loser Noah Rubin in the first round in straight sets, as Nick Kyrgios withdrew from the match at the last minute due to a knee injury. The 34-year-old will be joined by #NextGenATP stars Carlos Alcaraz and Lorenzo Musetti.

Other players to watch include 2016 champion Pablo Carreno Busta, five-time tour-level titlist David Goffin and former World No. 3 Marin Cilic.
