Murray will start his assault on the Australian summer of tennis at the Brisbane International.


The Scotsman has signed up for the event starting on New Year’s Day at Queensland Tennis Centre. Murray said he was looking forward to making his first visit to the state. “With a quality field, it is the perfect way to begin my Australian campaign,” Murray said. He is another big-name signing for the event, which runs until January 8 and serves as ideal preparation for the Australian Open from January 16.

Brisbane International tournament director Cameron Pearson was thrilled to add Murray’s name to an already impressive line-up for 2012, which includes Sam Stosur, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Kim Clijsters and Ana Ivanovic. “Andy will join Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova in their debut year at the Brisbane International and I am sure all three will be fan favourites with the Queensland public,” Pearson said.

Murray suffered a setback in his bid to win the season-ending ATP Tour Finals in London overnight, when he was beaten by Spain’s David Ferrer 6-4, 7-5 in their round-robin match.
