Murray will participate in the US Open Series on grass for the first match in sixteen years this year. Murray reached the semifinals of the competition in 2005, when he was 19 years old.

The tournament was supposed to start off the Series in 2020, however it was pushed back owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. Flushing Meadows will be preceded by seven tournaments.

Murray has won eight grass-court championships in his career, including two Wimbledon Championships. This year, he reached the final of the Stuttgart Open and finished second on hard courts behind Matteo Berrettini before falling to John Isner in his home major.

Isner, a four-time winner at Newport, will also play in the ATP 250 event, extending his grass-court season by one week after breaking the ATP record for most career aces at Wimbledon.

Felix Auger-Aliassime, a Canadian, got a wild card and will compete in the event with Andy Murray. Other potential rivals are Jenson Brooksby (USA), Maxime Cressy (France), and Steve Johnson (USA).

Kevin Anderson, a finalist at the 2017 US Open, won the championship in 2021. He announced his retirement from the sport in May.
