Andy Murray Set Play At Queen's Ahead Of Wimbledon

British number one Andy Murray believes he is on track to appear at the Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club next week.

The 26-year-old is sitting out the French Open in a bid to improve a long-standing back problem, and has always been targeting the traditional Wimbledon warm-up tournament for his return.

With just a few days to go before the action begins at Queen's, he tweeted: "Barring no setbacks in the next couple of days I will be making an appearance at the club of the queen next week! #backontrack"

The Aegon Championships begin on Monday, exactly two weeks before the start of Wimbledon.

Murray recently revealed he had been living with the back problem for some time.

He told ESPN: "It's been tough, it's something I've been dealing with on and off for 18 months.

Murray has won twice at Queen's Club, in 2009 and 2011

"It's worse on certain surfaces and in certain conditions and when it flares up it's tough to have it calm down.

"It has obviously been tough for me on the clay over the last couple of years. It's just something I have been having to deal with the last little while and hopefully it will get better."

By sitting out the French Open, Murray ended a run of three straight grand slam final appearances.
