Andy Murray and Daniel Evans have been named the final wild card entries into the 2021 Winston-Salem Open.

Murray is a former world No. 1 and holds 46 career singles titles, including two at Wimbledon and one from the U. S. Open. The 34-year-old Scotsman is also the only man to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals (2012, 2016).
