Murray marked his return to competitive tennis in June, where he won the men's doubles with Feliciano Lopez, and played doubles and mixed doubles tennis at Wimbledon, sharing the court with Serena Williams in a formidable mixed doubles team.

Former world number one Andy Murray will play at the 2020 Australian Open in January, confirmed tournament director Craig Tiley.

And fans will no doubt be thrilled at the prospect of seeing Murray back in action on the big stage, with the superstar getting a protected ranking of No.2.

According to media reports, although Murray has not officially entered the 2020 Australian Open, he sure has confirmed his participation in the inaugural ATP Cup in Australia, from January 3-12.

At the beginning of this year Murray broke down in tears at a press conference at the Australian Open when he said that because of a hip injury it might be his last Grand Slam.

Murray is now playing in the Shanghai Open.

After losing to Agut in last year's opening round the Australian Open played a video to Murray during his post match interview that showed many of his colleagues paying tribute to him. "That should be fun, so I'm happy for Andy".

"After having that for let's say five or six years and it getting gradually worse over time, I couldn't really remember what it was like not being in pain". "It was great to see him again and great to chat to him a little bit".

It was undoubtedly a little awkward but, speaking to reporters in Shanghai, Murray said: "The good thing about when I watched it was I really saw this is a major surgery".
