Hurlingham return for Murray

Andy Murray will warm up for his Wimbledon defence by participating in the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at London's Hurlingham Club this summer.

Organisers have announced that Murray, the current world number seven, will be one of the star attractions at the exhibition event taking place from June 17-20.

The Classic will feature a number of the world's top players, men and women, participating in a series of grass-court exhibition matches to fine-tune for Wimbledon the following week.

A number of veteran players, including Tim Henman, Goran Ivanisevic, Mark Philippoussis and Pat Cash, have also been confirmed.

Murray said: "Playing at the Hurlingham Club last June was the perfect way for me to warm up for Wimbledon. It's a great setting and I'm looking forward to playing again this year."
