British Sir Andy Murray (ATP-50) wants the ATP Tour to focus more on tournaments in South America. He is, among other things, campaigning for his own Masters 1000 tournament there.

On that day

A 'swing' refers to a series of matches held in a particular region or continent. Examples include Asian swing, European indoor swing, and Australian swing. ATP-1000 tournaments are held there, but not (yet) in South America.

“The way the fans support the matches there is unbelievable. Great atmosphere and it's part of their sports culture. let's go ATP Tour!”, adds Murray.

Murray, who has been a member of the ATP Player Council for many years, hopes to give South America a Masters-1000 tournament this way.

“Less support every year”

He has already received help from many colleagues, including Diego Schwartzman (ATP-115) from Argentina: “Every year we receive less support. We deserve better than this for ATP. Thank you for your words!”

The Briton is coming off his season debut in Doha (Qatar, ATP 250) and next week in Dubai (United Arab Emirates, ATP 500), where he will face Canadian Denis Shapovalov (ATP-121).
