Andy Murray is eager to be back in the competition. The former world No. 1 is back to practice on hard courts one month or so, and his recovery from the hip surgery he had in January is going well.
However, Murray wants to take one step at a time and not try to come back too quickly like he did at last year's US Open or this year's Brisbane International by practicing on the tournament site and then withdraw.
That's why the three-time Grand Slam champion won't play the Glasgow ATP Challenger that takes place next week, from April 30 to May 5. There were a few rumours about it last weekend, but the news is now official despite the entry deadline is set for Wednesday, April 25th. Murray could come back at the Loughborough ATP Challenger in late May, before coming back on the main Tour in June at the Libema Open in 's-Hertogenbosch.
For those with tickets next week or if you are interested in going, Andy Murray will not make his comeback at the Glasgow ATP Challenger.— Stuart Fraser (@stu_fraser) 23 aprile 2018
