"I love playing the biggest events," the 33-year-old recently told reporters as per The Guardian. "Even though this will be different with no fans. But that is something I care about and I'm willing to take a risk to go and play."
The Western iamp; Southern Open, where he owns a 31-12 singles record, will be Murray's first tour-level action in 2020.
