Bridgetown: Reigning Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will headline Barbados’ Dream Cup opening next month.
Organisers say the Dream Cup, into its third year, was started to promote opportunities for young, aspiring Barbadians, through the creation of a world-class tennis event, reports CMC.
The 26-year-old Scottish-born Murray, who has agreed to be part of the 2013 event, has been playing for Britain since the age of 12 and is currently ranked number three in the world.
The last 18 months have been his best, winning a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics followed by the 2012 US Open and thus obtaining the first Grand Slam title for Britain in over 70 years.
In July, he went on to become the first British male to win the Wimbledon title since Fred Perry in 1936.
The Nov 28-Dec 1 tournament will be telecast live on ESPN.
