LONDON: Former world number one Andy Murray will return to competitive action after almost a year’s hiatus at next week’s Queen’s ATP tournament, organizers announced on Saturday.
The 31-year-old Scot has not played a competitive match since he was knocked out of the Wimbledon quarter-finals last July, a hip injury ending his season.
He underwent surgery on it in Australia in January after pulling out of the Australian Open.
He has been practicing regularly for the past fortnight and a final workout on Friday at Queen’s Club convinced him to return.
“Andy Murray has confirmed that he will play in the Fever-Tree Championships,” the tournament said on its official Twitter account. AFP
