Murray To Play Krygios At Queens In Competitive Return To Court

Former world number one Andy Murray will make a competitive return to court at Queens for the first time in almost a year.

The 31-year-old came through a practice session on Friday and will now face Australian world number 24 Nick Kyrgios in the first round of the Fever-Tree Championships at Queens.

His last competitive appearance was at Wimbledon in July 2016.

Elsewhere in the draw, British number one Kyle Edmund will do battle with American Ryan Harrison, while Spanish reigning champion Feliciano Lopez faces David Goffin of Belgium.

Croatian top seed Marin Cilic will play another Spaniard, Fernando Verdasco, while 2008 runner-up and 12-time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic of Serbia will face a qualifier for a place in the second round.

Bulgarian second seed Grigor Dimitrov will also take on Bosnia’s Damir Dzumhur in round one.
