EXCLUSIVE: Andy Murray makes further plans to prepare for Wimbledon
Andy Murray is considering playing at the Hurlingham exhibition event that takes place the week before Wimbledon, Tennis365 understands.
The two-time Wimbledon champion has placed at Hurlingham in previous years and it is expected he will return later this month if he presses forward with his plans to make his return to the game to play at Wimbledon, which gets underway on July 2nd.
Murray has not played since his hip injury flared up last July, with his last appearance in a competitive match coming in his Wimbledon quarter-final defeat against Sam Querrey almost a year ago.
The Scot pulled out of his planned comeback at the Libema Open in Holland this week, but he has stepped up his practice regime in recent days ahead of a possible return at the Fever Tree Championships to be staged at The Queen’s Club in London next week and the vibes from his camp suggest he is edging closer to a competitive return.

Murray was at Queen’s on Friday for a practice session and appeared to be moving well on the grass after what he has admitted has been a ‘slower than expected’ recovery from hip surgery last January.
Now the final decision on when Murray will return to action is looming large, with his camp still hopeful that he can be included in the draw for the Queen’s Club event that will take place on Saturday.
