Former world No. 1 Andy Murray received a wild-card entry into the 2020 French Open relocated from May to later this month due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As explained by the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), the 33-year-old was also awarded a wild-card berth into the US Open. He rallied to defeat Yoshihito Nishioka in the opening round of that tournament before he fell to Felix Auger-Aliassime in straight sets, 2-6, 3-6, 4-6.
Murray is the only non-Frenchman to receive a pass into the main draw of the French Open. The tournament begins Sept. 21.
Murray underwent a hip operation in January 2018 and again in January 2019, and he missed this year's Australian Open and ATP Cup because of a pelvic injury. He returned to action at the Western & Southern Open in August.
Murray has never won the French Open. He fell to Novak Djokovic in the final of the 2016 tournament.
