Former world number one Andy Murray will compete in his first Challenger Tour event in 14 years at next week's Rafa Nadal Open in Mallorca, tournament organisers confirmed https://www.rafanadalopen.com/media/noticias/andy-murray-jugara-rafa-nadal-open-by-sothebys-international-realty on Thursday.

Andy Murray has chose to drop down to the Challenger Tour in a bid to revive his career.

Murray has played in two ATP Tour events and will now compete on the second tier Challenger Tour for the first time since 2005. He returned to the court in June playing doubles — including at Wimbledon — before moving back to singles this month.

The tournament will be held at the Rafael Nadal tennis academy on the island of Mallorca starting on Monday (Aug 26).

Rublev a été le moins efficace des deux joueurs au service, gagnant seulement 44 % des points disputés sur sa deuxième balle. Shapovalov n'aura pas beaucoup de temps pour célébrer, puisqu'il jouera son match de demi-finale en soirée.

The three-time grand slam champion has now chose to step down to the second tier for the first time since 2005, when he played in the Challenger event in Mons as an 18-year-old. "It's competitive at this level but it needs to be better - maybe I need to play a level down to get some matches and build my game up a little bit before I start playing on the Tour again", Murray said after losing his opening round match in North Carolina.

He has lost both of his singles matches so far in his comeback, falling to France's Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati and American Tennys Sandgren in Winston-Salem on Monday.

Nadal, of course, will not be playing as he will be chasing a fourth US Open title in NY.
