Andy Murray to end season after upcoming tournaments in Shenzhen and Beijing

Andy Murray will face top seed David Goffin in the second round

Andy Murray will face top seed David Goffin in the second round

He is now ranked No. 308 in the world.

Murray always meant to play again before the year was out and has now revealed that he will feature in the Shenzhen and Beijing tournaments over the next two weeks but will then shut it down and miss two Masters series events in Shanghai and Paris.

The twice Wimbledon champion announced on Saturday that the ATP events in Shenzen and Beijing will be his last of the year before he concentrates on more rehab work to get himself ready for January's Australian Open.

The Briton is due to bring his 2018 campaign to a close after his next two tournaments - the Shenzhen Open and China Open - in order to prepare for the start of 2019 season.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, Murray said: "I'm competing this week in Shenzhen and then next week in Beijing before calling an end to the year competitively".

Murray underwent surgery in January to correct a persistent hip issue that has forced him to miss nearly a year of tennis.

Before the 8:25 p.m. kick-off, Belichick emerged from the tunnel and strutted right past the boys' stretched out arms. Rookie running back Sony Michel rushed for a team-high 34 yards on 10 carries in his National Football League debut.

'I'm looking forward to playing in Shenzen and Beijing over the next few weeks, ' said Murray.

"After that I've chose to end my season to give me the preparation time I need to get ready for a strong 2019".

Murray hopes reconditioning and "some hard training" will help him "make some big improvements".

"It's been really positive the last few months".

He withdrew from Wimbledon on the eve of the tournament and lost in the second round at the US Open on his return to Grand Slams. "Hopefully, the next couple of weeks go well in China, looking forward to it", said the former Wimbledon victor.
