Former British No. 1 Andy Murray will play at the ATP 's-Hertogenbosch in June a week before he is due to play in Queen's as he continues his comeback from injury.

Murray, 30, has not played competitively since losing in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon last year and after pulling out of this year's Australian Open decided to undergo surgery on his hip.

He was initially scheduled to make his return from injury at Queen's but it has now been confirmed that he will play in Rosmalen a week earlier.

"The two-time Wimbledon champion will continue his comeback from injury on the grass courts of Rosmalen in the Netherlands," the organisers of the June 11-17 tournament said in a statement on Thursday.

"I am looking forward to getting back on the grass and to play in Rosmalen for the first time." Murray said.

"I've heard lots of good things about the tournament and the courts are meant to be very good. It's the perfect way for me to prepare for Wimbledon."

Murray, who has lost his British No. 1 ranking to Kyle Edmund, has recently returned to the practice court and has been training at Patrick Mouratoglou's academy.

There is still a chance that Murray could return to action even earlier.

There are two ATP Challenger Tour events at Glasgow and Loughborough scheduled with the former due to take place from April 28 – May 6 and the latter between May 19 – May 27.
