After several failed attempts earlier in the new he went hip surgery in Melbourne during the Australian Open and has been recovering ever since.

There is still the possibility that he may play the new LTA Challenger indoors on hardcourts at Loughborough between April 28 and the 5th May, but that remains conjecture.

In the meantime he will be opening his campaign on the grass courts at the ATP 250 event in Rosmalen which has new sponsorship and will now be known as the Liama Open just a few weeks before taking part in Queen’s and then Wimbledon.

“I am looking forward to getting back on the grass and to play Rosmalen for the first time. 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,” he said in a statement.

There have been some positive signs that the three-time grand slam champion is gaining momentum in his rehabilitation. This week he is training at the Patrick Mouratoglou academy in Niece with his team and last Wednesday he uploaded a picture of himself hitting with his protégé Aidan McHugh.
