Andy Murray is among 70 players that have agreed to enter the players' draft for the International Premier Tennis League.

The Wimbledon champion joins the likes of Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka, Novak Djokovic, and world No.1 Rafael Nadal - who is expected to rake in $1 million a night at the December tournament.

Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Agnieszka Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki will all play in the women's tournament, while Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras will be included in the draft in the past champions and legends category.

The IPTL will be played in teams of five across host cities Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, Singapore and Hong Kong between November 28 and December 20 - following the conclusion of the regular 2014 season.

Each match will be played over the best of five sets, with each set to be played in a different format - men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles, mixed doubles and men's legends.
