Murray and Dimitrov former champions set to play ATP 250

Ben Shelton is among the stars who have committed to play the Brisbane International, which will be held in the first week of the 2024 season alongside the United Cup and the Bank of China Hong Kong Tennis Open.

“I’m thrilled to be playing the Brisbane International for the first time in 2024. My first trip to Australia was last January, and it was such an amazing experience. The fans were so welcoming,” Shelton said in a tournament press release. “I’m looking forward to exploring Brisbane and playing in front of the local fans. Hopefully, there will also be a chance to fit in some sightseeing during my visit.”

Other players who will compete in the ATP 250 include recent Nitto ATP Finals competitor Holger Rune, former World No. 1 Andy Murray and 2017 Nitto ATP Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov.

The ATP 250 will be held for the first time since 2019. Murray is a two-time champion at the event and Dimitrov won the tournament in 2017.

The Hologic WTA Tour will have a WTA 500 event at the same time, with Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina and Naomi Osaka among the players set to play.
