The former world No. 1 underwent a hip resurfacing operation at the end of January and looked set to retire from a sport in which he’s won three Grand Slam titles.
But less than five months after surgery, Murray will return to action on the grass courts of the Fever-Tree Championships, while he’s eyeing a return to singles later in the year.

It promises to be a tricky opener against the Colombian pairing, who lead the Race to London after six months.
His brother Jamie is also in the doubles draw alongside Liverpool’s Neal Skupski and the Murray brothers can face off as early as the semi-finals.

It didn’t get much better for British No. 2 Cameron Norrie who faces last year’s Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson, while British No. 4 Jay Clarke will meet France’s Lucas Pouille.
Defending champion Marin Cilic, who beat Novak Djokovic in last year’s final will meet Chile’s Cristian Garin.

Juan Martin del Potro is in Tsitsipas’ half, while fourth seed Daniil Medvedev joins second seed Kevin Anderson in the bottom half.
Canadian hotshot Felix Auger-Aliassime faces a tough test against Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in the first round, with the winner potentially taking on Nick Kyrgios, who meets Adrian Mannarino in his opening match.
