Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are announced as new members of the ATP Player Council

Andy Murray has been announced as one of the new members of the ATP Player Council and will serve a two-year term.

Joining the Scot as new board members are his brother Jamie and world No1 Novak Djokovic.

“It’s the first time I’m getting involved in something like this and I’m looking forward to getting started with the rest of the guys on the Council,” said Murray.

“We’ve seen a lot of growth on the ATP World Tour in recent years and hopefully we can continue that.”

Djokovic is currently preparing to kick off the defence of his Wimbledon title at SW16.

“I am humbled to be elected by my colleagues to be on the Players Council. It is a big responsibility and I know how much all of us players care for our sport to thrive and grow,” said Djokovic.

“I see this as an opportunity and I hope to fulfil the expectations of my colleagues.”
