When is Andy Murray playing?
Andy Murray has made it through to the quarter finals of the competition, silencing criticism after he fell at the first hurdle of the ATP Rolex Paris Masters.
He beat Jannik Sinner 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 in the round of 16 after beating Norway’s Viktor Durasovic in the round of 32 6-1 7-6 (9-7).
After his triumph against Sinner, Murray said “I said in the last few weeks, it’s coming, it’s coming.
“And I don’t know if it will be this week or at the beginning of next year, but I’m going to be pushing and getting deep in tournaments again.
“I’m playing at the top level and I’m winning matches against the top players in the world, and the ones that I’m losing, I’m pushing the best players in the world. So that argument is finished. I can compete at the top level.”
Murray will play Tommy Paul at 5pm (GMT) on Centre Court.
What is Andy Murray’s current ATP tennis ranking?
The Former Number one has only recently returned to the court following a hip surgery and is currently ranked as 143rd in the world.
There is no doubt that he will rise back up the grid as he continues to play more tennis and especially if his success continues in Stockholm.
Following Indian Wells champion, Cameron Norrie, and Dan Evans, Murray is ranked as Britain’s number three tennis player.
Who are the top seeds at this year’s Stockholm Open?
Jannik Sinner had been the number one seed for the Stockholm Open until he was beaten by the Scottish player.
Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime was the second seed and he too has made it through to the quarter finals where he will play Botic van de Zanschulp.
Daniel Evans had been the fourth seed of the tournament but has just been knocked out by the eight seed, Frances Tiafoe.
