The World No 112 is the fifth seed for the Challenger event in Brittany and he begins his campaign against Germany’s Yannick Maden (World No 240) on Monday.
Murray suffered a gruelling five-set defeat by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round of the US Open, but his performance levels showed that he is able to compete at the top level and he will go into the event as one of the favourites to lift the trophy.
Richard Gasquet is the top seed, with the draw full of talented Frenchman including Gilles Simon, Arthur Rinderknech and Benjamin Bonzi
How can I watch Murray this week?
