Andy Murray to play Wimbledon warm-ups at Surbiton and Queen’s
Former British number one Andy Murray has confirmed that he will begin is grass-court season and Wimbledon preparations at the Surbiton Trophy in May before playing at the Queen’s Club in June.
On Monday, Murray announced that he is to skip the French Open in order to prepare for the grass-court summer.
Instead, the Scot is set to headline the field at Surbiton on the 29th May, which will be the first time that Murray has played on the Challenger Tour in the UK since 2004, when he was just 17 years of age.
Later in the summer he will head to Queen’s Club, where he is the record winner with five singles titles and one doubles trophy which he won with Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez back in 2019.
In between, he is also due to head to Germany to play at the Stuttgart Open for the first time.
Discussing the upcoming grass-court tournaments, the three-time Grand Slam champion said that he was excited to play in front of home crowds once more.
“I’m really looking forward to playing at Surbiton and Queen’s this year – two great events,” said Murray. “It’s always special playing on the grass in front of a home crowd.”
Andy Murray won’t be the only high profile player at the Queen’s Club as he joins a stacked entry list.
British number one and last year’s finalist Cameron Norrie will also play at Queen’s alongside compatriots Dan Evans and Jack Draper.
Spanish teen sensation and Madrid Masters champion Carlos Alcaraz and defending champion Matteo Berrettini are also in the Queen’s draw.
In addition, Britain are well represented in the doubles draw, with world number one Joe Salisbury set to make appearance as well as Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski.
