Andy Murray: 'No pressure on comeback win at Queen's'

Andy Murray says that he is putting himself under no pressure to win his opening match at Queen's as he prepares to return to the court for the first time in a year.

Andy Murray has acknowledged that he expects to be nervous when he plays his first competitive match in almost a year on Tuesday afternoon.

Murray has not featured on the ATP Tour since last year's Wimbledon due to a hip injury, which required surgery after other forms of treatment proved ineffective.

The former world number one plays Nick Kyrgios in the opening round at Queen's, with the Scot suggesting that he will not pay too much attention to the result of the match.

The 31-year-old is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "I'm not putting pressure on myself to win. I'm more concerned with how I feel on court.

"There are a lot of doubts when you've not played for a long time. I'm expecting to be very nervous when I go back out there.

"Coming back from injury you're always kind of second guessing yourself. You never know exactly when you're going to be ready, but I'm looking forward to getting back out there and competing, and hopefully playing well."

Murray currently sits at 156th in the world rankings.
