Following a successful return to tennis on grass, Andy Murray will now test his surgically repaired hip on the hard courts next week in Washington, D.C.
The former No. 1 has taken a wildcard in the doubles event joining brother Jamie on the court. The two have not partnered in an ATP level event since 2016.
“I’m obviously very excited to be on the court with him (Jamie) and also to go back to Washington,” said Andy Murray. “It’s a city I’ve always enjoyed visiting so it should be fun. I’m hoping to have a good summer over in the States, keep progressing physically and hopefully get back on the singles court soon.”
Murray will not compete in the singles draw which will feature Stefanos Tsitsipas, John Isner, Kevin Anderson, Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori.
