Andy Murray’s Wimbledon fitness doubts continue to linger

Andy Murray practised at Queen’s Club on Friday to assess his fitness but doubts still remain over his chances of playing Wimbledon.

The two-time champion will play with fellow Briton Cameron Norrie on the practice courts before deciding whether he can recommit to the ATP Tour next week.

The Fever-Tree Championships begin at Queen’s Club on Monday as a traditional pre-Wimbledon warm-up.

Rafael Nadal has already withdrawn from The Fever-Tree Championships but Novak Djokovic has been handed a wild card entry.

Murray’s inclusion remains shrouded in doubt – his world ranking has slipped to No 157 because he hasn’t played a competitive match since last year’s Wimbledon.

He is still recovering from hip surgery while attempted previous returns to full fitness have failed to materialise.

Murray is still listed on The Fever-Tree Championships entry list, but withdrew from this week’s Libema Open in the Netherlands.

Wimbledon, which Murray first won in 2013 to end Britain’s 77-year wait for a home champion, begins on July 2.
