US Open champion Andy Murray is set to head to Bangkok for the Thailand Masters event.

Newly crowned US Open champion Andy Murray is set to be among the tennis players heading to Bangkok for the Thailand Open at the end of this month.

The tournament was first held in 2003 and is now one of the two biggest competitions in the whole of south-east Asia as it offers a $551,000 prize money pot.

As well as Murray, two-time champion Roger Federer, James Blake, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon have all signed up to be in Thailand for the tournament which begins on September 24th.

The fast hard courts of Bangkok have been suited to the British number one’s game in the past and it was here that the Scot first reached an ATP world Tour final as an 18-year-old back in 2005.

Back then he was ultimately beaten by Federer, but seven years on and with an Olympic gold medal and a first grand slam to his name, things may turn out to be different this year.
