Andy Murray is set to return to the court for the first time since coronavirus forced the suspension of tennis.
The three-time Grand Slam winner will be part of the Schroders Battle of the Brits, the first ‘behind-closed-doors’ tennis tournament at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, with the aim of raising a minimum of £100,000 for NHS Charities Together.
It promises to be the first step for the Scot on his journey back to competing at Grand Slams, having already confirmed his intention to play at the US Open from 24 August.
