#NextGenATP American Korda also given a main draw spot
Former World No. 1 Murray owns a 33-13 record at the ATP Masters 1000 event, at which he lifted the trophy in 2008 and 2011. Last year, the Scot beat Alexander Zverev in the second round of the hard-court tournament, which was held in New York due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Murray most recently competed in the Tokyo Olympics in men’s doubles alongside Joe Salisbury for Great Britain. They reached the quarter-finals, where they lost against eventual silver medalists Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig of Croatia.
Korda will compete in the main draw of the Western & Southern Open for the second time. Last year, the American qualified before losing a tight three-setter against Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori in the first round.
