Britishtennis sensation Andy Murray has confirmed that he would be returning to professional and competitive tennis this month.
Murray, who has not played tennis at the highest level since the Australian Open 2019, would mark his on-court return during the grass season this month.
However, he would be playing in doubles section, with Spanish partner Feliciano Lopez.
Here's more on it.
Murray excited ahead of his return
Murray expressed his delight ahead of his return to the sport.
He would play the Queen's Club Championship this month.
Having won a record five titles here, he marked it as the best place to return.
"It's where I won my first ATP match, my first title in Britain and on grass, and it's been my most successful tournament overall," he said to BBC.
Murray not yet ready for singles return
"I am not yet ready to return to the singles court, but I've been pain-free for a few months now. I've made good progress in training, and this is the next step for me as I try to return to the tour," he further quoted.
Murray's future was doubtful following hip resurfacing surgery
Murray had revealed during the Australian Open that his future could be doubtful, as he was scheduled to undergo the hip resurfacing surgery in February.
The surgery involved keeping more of the damaged bone, rather than an entire hip replacement.
Although the surgery was successful, there was still some doubts regarding his on-court return.
