Andy Murray news: Former world No.1 chooses to compete in ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament

Murray left it late before confirming on Thursday morning that he'd compete in the Rotterdam tournament next week.

After Murray disappointingly bowed out of the Australian Open last month, fans were unsure whether the 34-year-old Scot would participate in any tournaments towards the beginning of February.

But on Thursday morning, Murray confirmed that he'd travel to Rotterdam next week in order to take part in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.

It'll be Murray's first time on court since his straight-set loss to Japan's Taro Daniel in the second round of the Australian Open last month.

He'll be hoping to rediscover some of the form that saw him reach the final of the Sydney Classic just days before the start of the Australian Open.

But if he is to succeed in Rotterdam, it'll be without former coach Jan De Witt, after Murray confirmed he was parting ways with the German earlier this week.

The three-time Grand Slam winner is yet to settle down with a new coach, with the Scot still struggling to replace long-term trainer Jamie Delgado.

Following on from the Rotterdam tournament, Murray is planning on travelling to Qatar for the ExxonMobil Open in Doha, before going to Dubai for the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Murray's main priority will be to buid up a string of results before the next Grand Slam - the French Open, starting on May 22.
