Queen’s Club tournament director Stephen Farrow has admitted he hopes to see Andy Murray back competing in the Fever-Tree Championships once again, Tennis World USA report.

Murray, who hinted at retirement at the Australian Open last month, recently underwent hip surgery in a bid to extend his playing career.

The 31-year-old had hip resurfacing surgery in London last month and is hoping to be back in time for Wimbledon this summer.

The three-time Grand Slam champion has been a regular at The Queen’s Club during his career, lifting the tournament prior to Wimbledon five times.

The Brit, who’s hip problem has been ongoing for 18 months, competed at the event last year, however, Murray suffered an opening round defeat to Australian Nick Kyrgios.

And talking in the week, Farrow admitted he hopes to see the former world number one back competing again and would leave the door wide open for Murray to take part at the Fever-Tree Championships.

Andy is our greatest champion, and he has our full support. The most important thing is that he recovers well from his surgery and can live a pain-free life as soon as possible.

We have a special bond with him – he won his first professional match at The Queen’s Club, he won the tournament five times, and we have so many special memories of him playing on our centre court.

Of course, we would love to have him back at the Fever-Tree Championships if he is fit and able to play. We will keep in close contact with him and his team, and the door will remain open for him for as long as possible.
