World No.3 Andy Murray and Aussie stalwart Lleyton Hewitt will face a stellar line-up at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp in 2013.
Five top 20 players including young gun and world No.13 Milos Raonic (CAN), world No.16 Gilles Simon (FRA), Brisbane 2012 runner-up and world No.18 Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR), as well as world No.19 Kei Nishikori(JPN), have all signed on to start their year in the sunshine state.
“I am really looking forward to playing at the Brisbane International,” Raonic said.
“The Brisbane tournament has been an appealing choice to make this time round because I really enjoy being in Australia, it makes the travel a lot easier. I’ve played well in Australia and to be able to play in another city on the east coast is a good opportunity that I look forward to,” he continued.
“I look forward to new experiences, good food and building some good memories there,” Raonic added.
