Murray confirmed for Surbiton Trophy to begin grass court season

Former World No.1 Andy Murray will make his comeback next week at the Lexus Surbiton Trophy.

After skipping the French Open to concentrate on his Wimbledon preparations, Murray has opted to enter the ATP Challenger Tour event. The Brit was given a wildcard, and will be competing at the second-tier tournament for the second straight year. He reached the semifinal, before losing to Denis Kudla.

"The LTA's Lexus Surbiton Trophy is a great way for me to start my grass-court season," said the three-time Grand Slam champion. "It's nice to play somewhere that has the feel of a traditional club and I'm hoping to get some good matches and practice in there during the week in front of the British fans."

Murray will be joined by compatriot Dan Evans, who suffered an opening round loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis in Paris this week.
