Andy Murray’s return to the court from a hip injury could take place at one of two brand new indoor events in the UK this year.

Despite previously stating that he hoped to return around the grass-court season (if not just before), there is now a thought his comeback could come sooner than expected.

The Lawn Tennis Association have announced these two events this week, which will take place in Glasgow and Loughborough respectively.

With the tournaments taking place in May, they will stand out as a good opportunity for former world number one Murray to get some tennis under his  belt before his arrival at Wimbledon.

A two-time champion in South London, Murray’s team has supposedly been in contact with the LTA with regards to the events, which will take place on the ATP Challenger Tour – a level below the ATP World Tour.

During his layoff, Murray has lost his position as the number one ranked British player to Kyle Edmund – a title he’s sure to regain on his return to the court.
