Andy Murray hopes for June return as plans to restart tennis gather pace


PARIS: Andy Murray will be hoping to compete in his first match since November when competitive tennis returns to Great Britain at the end of next month with a national tournament organised by his brother, Jamie.

Murray has not competed since his appearance in the Davis Cup Finals was followed by complications with his hip. He had returned to practice shortly before the tour was suspended because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Details of the event in June, including venue and dates, are still to be confirmed.

Murray will have numerous options as he eases back into competition, because the LTA is also planning to host a series of British Tour events beginning a week later. More events are planned around the country but the LTA has chosen the outdoor hard courts of its National Tennis Centre in Roehampton for the sport’s return. —Agencies
