Men's Tennis, Last updated:


Andy Murray is to start his 2013 Australian Open preparations this weekend at the Miami Tennis Cup, starting on Friday.

The British number one and US Open champion will meet the recently-retired Andy Roddick at the inaugural exhibition tournament in the Sunshine State on Saturday.
John Isner, Nicolas Almagro, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Alejandro Falla make up the 'Super Six' at Crandon Park Tennis Centre in South Florida.
"It is a very, very tough field," Isner said. "We are all looking for competition before the Australian Open, and there is no better practice than matches against good players."
Murray will make the short journey from his training base in Miami, while Isner said former US Open champion Roddick was looking forward to returning to the courts.
"He's been spending a lot of time on his golf game," he added. "He has the luxury of being able to travel and play golf, so he's hooked now.
"I'm not sure how much tennis he's played since his retirement, but I'm sure he'll still play good matches here. He still knows how to hit a ball."
