Andy Murray just announced that he will compete in the Moselle Open in Metz in 2021. He will compete as a wildcard in the competition, which will take place from September 20, 2021, to September 26, 2021.

According to reports on Tennis Majors, Murray told reporters in Rennes, where he is presently competing in a Challenger competition, that his body is in perfect condition right now.

He also mentioned that he wants to increase his ATP rankings and that in order to do so, he needs to play more and more matches on the circuit. He is now ranked 116th.

He said, “I’ve had a lot of matches this year, and my body is fine. The goal for the last few years has been to try and improve my ranking. For that, I have to compete often.”

Murray has played a lot of matches in 2021, compared to last year. It’ll be interesting to see if he can keep himself in shape for the rest of the year.

Murray talks about playing in tournaments

Murray has already confirmed his participation in the Indian Wells Masters in 2021, where he will compete as a wildcard. He believes he can still play good tennis, but he needs to improve his rating in order to avoid playing against elite players at the start of any tournament.

“I still feel that I can play at a very high level. Every time I go to a tournament I play a top player from the start, it’s not easy. I have to improve my ranking to avoid this,” he added.

Murray’s appearance at the Moselle Open in 2021 has increased the excitement for his fans.
