Three-Time Grand Slam Champion Andy Murray Accepts Wild Card into Infosys Hall of Fame Open Field The three-time Grand Slam Champion will compete in Newport for the first time since 2006. Fans can purchase individual session and full series tickets at

JULY 5, 2022, NEWPORT, R.I, U.S.A., – Andy Murray, a two-time Wimbledon champion, US Open champion and former world No. 1, is set to compete as a wild card at the 2022 Infosys Hall of Fame Open in Newport, Rhode Island. With the addition of Murray, the Infosys Hall of Fame Open now features a highly competitive field of 18 players currently ranked in the ATP’s top 100, including four in the top 50. “Andy Murray is an all-time great of the sport, and it’s fitting to have him join the Infosys Hall of Fame Open field and play on our historic grounds,” said Tournament Director Brewer Rowe. “We’re thrilled to join with our fans in welcoming him back to Newport.”

Currently ranked No. 52 in the Pepperstone ATP Tour rankings, Murray ranks fourth among active players with 700 career victories behind only Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. He has captured 46 career singles titles, including three Grand Slams. In 2012, he became the first British man to win a major title in over 75 years when he won the US Open, and followed in 2013 and 2016 by winning his home major at Wimbledon. Murray finished the 2016 ranked No. 1 in the world, becoming the first British man to ascend to the top of the ATP rankings since the tour’s inception. Murray has returned to the top 50 in a resurgent 2022 season, advancing to two ATP finals in Sydney and Stuttgart and winning 16 matches. On Stuttgart’s grass, he defeated world No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios and Alexander Bublik en route to the final, and most recently advanced to the second round at Wimbledon. Next week will mark Murray’s third appearance at the Infosys Hall of Fame Open. He previously competed in Newport in 2005 and in 2006, when he was the tournament’s top seed and advanced to the semifinals.

    Best Newport entry list of all time. Sock, Felix, Bublik, Murray, Cressy, Isner, Kudla, Mannarino, Johnson, Popyrin, Thompson…

    That’s a great draw Scoop. As i always say, i love watching the smaller tourneys and even Challengers, i love to see players hungry for points. I like Murray or maybe a Sock to win this. Can’t see Isner burning himself out over a 250. Johnson is due for a run. He had a TERRIBLE final match at Wimbledon but has had a decent season and we know he’s a grass wizard.

    Cory, Dont forget Bublik, Cressy or Mannarino or even Jordan Thompson but if Murray doesn’t win this it’s another big disappointment because he believes he’s in fine form, he said he was ready for a deep run to challenge to win Wimbledon. If he can’t win Newport, it may crush his confidence or what is left of his confidence.

    I agree about the smaller tournaments having a special charm and allure and Newport is the epitome of a wonderful small tournament in a magical venue is a perfect city. Right now it’s my favorite tournament after Miami relocated from Key Biscayne to the NFL stadium and parking lot.

    You’re right Thompson and Mannarino are more than capable on grass… Thompson is due for something. Guy always has an empty cup. Sock can go deep (if he really wants it) – Murray needs at least a QF/semi appearance here. Same for Sock, they both just need simple points. Continue to build ranking … They both need to situate inside the top 40-50 to get more comfortable draws.

    I’m not a Bublik believer… altho he has had some success at this tourney as i recall loosely. Just can’t stand the guy.

    Cory, Bublik hit a few underhand serves in Newport and it got a lot of buzz. He also reached the Newport final in 2019, loss to Isner. Isner has won Newport four times.

    Van Rijthoven, F Lopez, Querrey and Kozlov also to play Newport. Best entry list of all time for Newport.
