Andy Murray debuted this Tuesday at the Biella Challenger and he did it with a win over Maximilian marterer (203 °) by 6-7 (3), 6-2 and 6-3. It was the first presentation of the Scotsman in 2021.
Murray was going to start the year at the ATP 250 in Delray Beach but preferred not to play it and better prepare for the Australian Open. Then, he tested positive for Covid-19 and did not travel to Melbourne: after the break at the time of being infected and the strict quarantine in Melbourne, the former world No. 1 prioritized not to travel. Murray has suffered various injuries and even decided to retire from tennis a few seasons ago.
The Biella Challenger, which was won in 2020 by Facundo Bagnis, has Murray (125th in the world) as the first seed. In the second round, the Scotsman will face the Italian Gian Marco Moroni (234 °).
