British Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has entered the grasscourt event at 's-Hertogenbosch, tournament organizers have announced.
Murray did not play most of the second half of 2017 and then underwent hip surgery at the beginning of the season. He is now back on court training at the Mouratoglou Academy in Nice, following several weeks of rehab.
Andy Murray speaks out on behalf of the women's game:
Murray's announcement means he is still on schedule to return by the grasscourt season, his stated aim following the hip procedure. According to British press, his successful recovery could also prompt him to play a new challenger event on indoor hardcourt a few weeks before his tour return.
"I'm having to go very slowly, but I'm happy to be back on court again," Murray was quoted as saying.
The three-time Grand Slam champion is then scheduled in the ATP event at Queen's Club, which he regularly plays before Wimbledon.
Murray has dropped to No. 29 in the rankings.
