Murray to make comeback after injury

Andy Murray has not played since being injured at November's Davis Cup Finals in Madrid

Former world No.1 Andy Murray will play his first match in seven months when the Battle of the Brits tournament gets under way on Tuesday.

The three-time grand-slam champion has been out of action since November with a bruised bone which hampered him during Great Britain's Davis Cup campaign, but makes his comeback against Liam Broady in the all-British tournament at the country's National Tennis Centre.

Murray was set to return to action on the ATP Tour in April, but that was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Murray says he is looking forward to competing at the US Open and French Open later this year but only if it is safe enough amid the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down the sport in March.

"Playing the Grand Slams would be my priority," Murray said.

"I think the schedule is tricky and I understand the reason why it is like that.

"I don't mind what the situation is, providing it is safe. If I was told I could take one person with me... you can make that work. I'd probably go with a physio and some coaching could be done remotely."
