Murray could make Glasgow comeback

13th March 2018, 17:56 by Neil Foster

It has been revealed there will be a new ATP Challenger Tour in Glasgow next month, giving Andy Murray a chance to make his comeback.

Murray has been out of action for a number of months due to a hip problem and underwent surgery in early January as rehab did not seem to be doing the trick.

The three-time Grand Slam winner had pencilled in the grass-court season as his possible comeback date as it was thought the French Open on clay would be too soon and the wrong surface on which to return to competitive tennis.

However, it has been announced that Britain will stage a couple of new events ahead of the return to grass, with a $100,000 Challenger Tour event at Scotstoun Tennis Centre in Glasgow followed by a second event at the Loughborough University Tennis Centre in May.

Murray has given no indication whether he will line up in the 32-man field for either event, but it would see the Scot dip his toe back in the water after the longest lay-off of his professional career.
