Andy Murray is set to kick off his grass comeback in the UK with an appearance at the Nottingham Open.

Murray, who has played only three tour-level singles matches this year, has been added the second-tier ATP Challenger Tour event, which begins on June 5.

The former world No.1 has chosen to miss this year’s French Open as he continues to recover from a groin injury he suffered before the Miami Open in March.

Murray, now 34, was expected to make his singles comeback on clay in either Geneva or Lyon but pulled out in order to concentrate on the grass.

Murray will join Venus Williams and Johanna Konta in Nottingham, the latter both confirmed for the event earlier in this month.
