Murray unsure about inaugural ATP Cup as he focuses on Australian Open

London: Former world No.1 Andy Murray is unsure about entering the inaugural ATP Cup, with the Australian Open his main priority.

The 32-year-old, who is about to embark on a three-week stint in Asia as he continues his comeback from hip surgery, has until 5pm on Friday to commit to the new tournament in Australia.

Murray would need to use his protected ranking of world No.2 to get Great Britain into the team competition – where each tie has two singles and a doubles rubber – as 32nd-ranked Kyle Edmund is unlikely to be high enough to qualify.

The Scot is only in the infancy of his comeback from the hip operation that saved his career, playing just three singles tournaments, and his need for matches, the proximity of the tournament to the Australian Open and the team’s need are all factors playing on his mind.
