Andy Murray and Kim Clijsters will get the chance to continue their current comebacks after being awarded wild cards on Thursday into next week’s start at the Indian Wells Masters.

Murray, whose fitness troubles began four years ago when he underwent his first hip surgery, placed a career-best semi-finals at the Californian desert venue in 2015.

Clijsters, who has bounced in and out of the game with several retirements and re-entries, has embarked upon another go at a career at age 38.

The US-based Belgian mother has won the Indian Wells title in 203 and 2005 as the ATP-WTA tournament is staged in the autumn after being cancelled in 2020 and postponed this season from its usual March date.

The latest Clijsters comeback began in late 2019 after a seven-year pause. She will be competing in the event for the first time in a decade.
