Andy Murray to use protected ranking to enter Australian Open

Andy Murray will participate in the Australian Open using his protected ranking of world number two.

The 31-year-old who is now 259th in the world ended this season early to focus on healing an injury he sustained in June.

His protected ranking affords him direct entry in up to nine tournaments from the point he returned from 11 months out in June.

The three-time Grand Slam champion has not played since losing to Spain’s Fernando Verdasco in the Shenzhen Open in September.
