Murray, Edmund In Battle of Brits

Andy Murray and  Kyle Edmund will square up when competitive tennis returns later this month in what has been dubbed ‘the battle of the brits”.

The former world number one is  making his first appearance in seven months and  has been drawn in the “Henman Group” with Edmund, Liam Broady and James Ward.

British number one Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie, Jay Clarke and Jack Draper have been drawn in the “Rusedski Group”.

The tournament – organised by Jamie Murray to raise money for NHS charities  will take place behind closed doors at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton from  June 23.

Murray’s last match was at the  Davids cup in Madrid last November  where the 33-year-old struggled with a bruise on his pelvic bone, and laboured past Tallon Griekspoor of the Netherlands.

Jamie Murray conducted the draw in a socially distanced ceremony involving the players on the courts of the National Tennis Centre.

Each had a nickname – and Andy Murray is “the one hip wonder”.
