Andy Murray confirms Eastbourne participation
Andy Murray will continue his recovery from hip surgery at the Eastbourne International next week.
The former world No 1 made his comeback following 11 months on the sidelines at the Queen’s Club Championship on Tuesday, going down in three sets to Nick Kyrgios.
And he will continue to test his fitness ahead of Wimbledon as he will compete at Devonshire Park.
“Pleased to announce I’ll be playing Eastbourne next week,” he wrote on Facebook.
“I played Davis Cup there in 2010 and I know the courts and facilities there are excellent. It was good to get back to competition at Queen’s this week, and I’m hoping to building on that next week at Devonshire Park.”
Murray, though, is yet to officially confirm his Wimbledon entry and is likely to do so after the Eastbourne tournament.
Nature Valley International Tournament Director Gavin Fletcher said: “Andy is a great champion and immensely popular with fans both here in Britain and around the world.
“With two Wimbledon titles to his name his grass court credentials are impeccable and I’m sure the fans will give Andy a warm welcome down here in Eastbourne.”
