Murray - I will play singles in China

11th August 2019, 15:08 by Tom Hill

Andy Murray has announced he will continue his singles comeback at the inaugural Zhuhai Championships and China Open later this year.

The Scot has taken his time this season after undergoing a hip resurfacing operation in January.

Murray has played doubles for the last few months but will return to singles action at the Cincinnati Masters this week.

His match against Richard Gasquet will be his first in the singles format since January but the world number one has confirmed he will also play in Asia in the coming weeks.

The 32-year-old wrote on Facebook: "I have always enjoyed playing in China and Zhuhai is meant to be a great city. It's close to Macau and Hong Kong, with an impressive stadium and I can't wait to experience it.

"I've got some great memories from playing in Beijing, it's a really interesting city, and I'm looking forward to heading back there again!"
