Rafael Nadal is scheduled return to action this month, playing an exhibition in Kazakhstan the week before Beijing.

The Spaniard will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, according to the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation. The two will hold a clinic for young players in the city of Astana, as well as an autograph session for students during a two-day trip.

Nadal has not played since his fourth-round Wimbledon loss to Nick Kyrgios, pulling out of his subsequent hard court events with a right wrist injury he experienced during practice.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray will return in two weeks, taking wild cards into the Shenzhen Open, which is being played for the first time, and the China Open in Beijing. Murray is also entered in the Shanghai Masters. "I’m looking forward to a busy month in Asia and playing in front of the passionate fans out here," said Murray.

Murray fell from the Top 10 following his U.S. Open quarterfinal loss to Novak Djokovic.
