Andy Murray will continue his singles comeback in China next month after confirming he will feature at the inaugural Zhuhai Championships and the China Open.

The former world No. 1 underwent hip-resurfacing surgery earlier this year after a first-round exit at the Australian Open in January, and has been playing doubles this summer in an attempt to regain fitness.

Murray has played doubles in recent weeks while practicing his singles in a bid to regain his fitness in time to play at Cincinnati as preparation for this year's final Grand Slam event that starts in NY on August 26.

Murray will face French veteran Richard Gasquet in the opening round after doubles appearances in Washington (Citi Open) and Montreal (Rogers Cup).

He confirmed this week he will make his singles comeback at the Western & Southern Open, though he has not yet decided whether he will contest the singles at the US Open. "I thought it maybe would have changed my perspective completely on things, but I'm sitting here disappointed, which I think is probably a good thing, and if I want to get back to playing at a high level, if I was sort of just happy to be back on the court and not really anxious about the outcome, then I'd be a bit maybe concerned about that".

"Pain-wise, obviously, I don't have pain in my hip, so that was one", Murray said.

Instead, the three-time major champion is back to playing singles at a Masters event. A lot of challenges remain before he's ready to play at a high level again.

Andy Murray has added two more singles tournaments to his schedule for the coming months, announcing that he will play at the inaugural Zhuhai Championships in China next month, one week before competing at the China Open in Beijing.

After so many injuries and a clear uncertainty about the hip procedure, Murray's return since his operation has been surprisingly swift. I didn't want to take a wild card today because I just didn't know how I was going to feel after a match.

Since having surgery in January, Murray has already won a doubles title - teaming up with Feliciano Lopez to claim victory at the Queen's Club.

Murray and his brother Jamie played doubles together for the first time since the 2016 Rio Olympics in Washington last week, losing in the quarter-finals. But at some stage you have to take the step to try and play. I haven't played many matches in the past 18 months, really.

Where can I get tickets for Andy Murray vs Richard Gasquet?

"The quickest way to get back up to speed is to practice with the top players, I think that means I can get back quicker". "Can he get into the top 100 or 50?"
