Meanwhile Brady, 25, is currently at a career-high singles ranking of World No 24 and reached the last four of the US Open in September.

Elsewhere, Britain’s Jamie Murray is entering the men’s doubles with Brazilian Bruno Soares, who he won the US Open with in 2016.

The Australian Open has been pushed back three weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic and is now scheduled to get underway on February 8.
