Andy Murray will compete in Newport for the first time since 2006.

Four-time champion Isner also set to compete

Andy Murray and Felix Auger-Aliassime have both accepted a wild card into next week’s Infosys Hall of Fame Open in Newport.

Murray will compete at the Rhode Island ATP 250 for the first time in 16 years, having advanced to the semi-finals in 2006. The Scot also played the tournament — where he owns a 4-2 record — in 2005.

Auger-Aliassime will make his debut in Newport. The 21-year-old Canadian is No. 9 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings and will pursue his second ATP Tour title. Earlier this year, he lifted his maiden tour-level trophy in Rotterdam.

“I’m looking forward to competing in the Infosys Hall of Fame Open for the first time,” Auger-Aliassime said. “Newport’s tennis history is one-of-a-kind, and I’m excited to experience all it has to offer, continue the grass court season, and meet the local fans.”

The field also includes four-time champion John Isner, 2018 champion Steve Johnson and other American stars including Jenson Brooksby and Maxime Cressy.
