The 22-year-old (still so young!) joins four-time ATP World Tour Champion Roger Federer (he retained the title between 2004-07) and 2008 ATP World Tour Champion Rafael Nadal as the first three singles players to qualify for the elite eight-man event.
Murray says, “Obviously with it being in the UK this year, it’s big for me.
“I think qualifying is a goal for all the players. I think it shows you’ve had a very solid year and I look forward to playing. This year the Tour is very tough and it’s tight at the top.”
Murray is hoping for a good battle for the No 1 spot in the world.
