Queen’s door still open for Andy Murray with reserved wildcard
Andy Murray will be given until the last-minute to decide if he will compete at the Fever-Tree Championships with Queen’s organisers reserving a wildcard for him.
The three-time Grand Slam winner underwent hip resurfacing surgery in January and has taken tentative steps to return to professional tennis.
Although he is yet to decide if he will make a comeback ahead of this year’s Wimbledon, he revealed in April that he was “pain-free”.
If he does plan on playing at SW19 then he is likely to enter a grass-court warm-up event and Queen’s organisers have held back a wildcard for the Scot, who will inform them of his decision “nearer the time”.
This year’s Fever-Tree Championship will run from June 17 to 23 and Marin Cilic will return to defend his title while top-10 players Kevin Anderson, Juan Martin del Potro and Stefans Tsitsipas are also in the draw.
Stan Wawrinka, Australian Nick Kyrgios as well as British duo Kyle Edmund and Cameron Norrie will also feature.
