Andy Murray set to return from injury at Geneva Open

Andy Murray is set to make his comeback from injury this month at the Geneva Open.

The 36-year-old, who is expected to retire at some point this season, has been sidelined since late March after damaging ankle ligaments in a third-round match against Tomas Machac at the Miami Open.

Murray opted not to have surgery but it had been feared the former world number one may not be able to have his Wimbledon swansong.

However, it was announced on Wednesday that Murray has been given a wild card for the ATP tournament on clay in Geneva beginning on May 18.

His representatives confirmed the Scot is also planning to make his return to the French Open the following week.

Murray has not played at Roland Garros since 2020, which was his only appearance since his hip problems began three years previously.

But he is keen to have a last hurrah at the biggest events, including another tilt at an Olympic medal on the Parisian clay this summer.

Murray is set to begin his grass-court campaign at the Boss Open in Stuttgart starting on June 10 followed by Queen’s and Wimbledon, meaning he will not defend his Challenger Tour titles in Surbiton and Nottingham.
