Andy Murray has revealed more of his comeback plans by confirming he will play at the Open Sud de France in February next year.

Murray said on his Facebook page: "Lots of great memories playing indoors in France, looking forward to playing Open Sud de France in Montpellier for the first time next year."

The event runs from February 3 to 10 next year and the tournament director of the Open 13 in Marseille revealed last week that Murray will also play there in February.

The three-time Grand Slam champion only played six tournaments in 2018 after a long recovery from hip surgery, and ended his season early to focus on 2019.

Murray, 31, has been spending a lot of time working with a specialist in Philadelphia as he tries to regain his best form which helped him to reach No 1 in the rankings in 2016.

He also plans to play at the Brisbane International in January as a warm-up to the Australian Open, which starts on January 14.
