Andy Murray to face Stanislas Wawrinka in first round at Eastbourne

Former world number one Andy Murray will continue his recovery from a long-term layoff by taking on Stanislas Wawrinka at Eastbourne.

Andy Murray has been handed a tricky first-round tie against fellow wildcard Stanislas Wawrinka at the Nature Valley International.

Both men are continuing their return from injury at Eastbourne with the hope of reaching fitness in the final warm-up event before Wimbledon begins on July 2.

Murray was back on the field at Queen's earlier this week following close to a year out, losing a thrilling contest to Nick Kyrgios in three sets, and he will now take on three-time Grand Slam champion Wawrinka.

Should the former world number one come out on top, he will then face fellow Briton Kyle Edmund in the second round.

Wawrinka also got some action under his belt at Queen's, with the 33-year-old suffering defeat to Sam Querrey.
