The 32-year-old, who has undergone two major hip procedures, will face off against Frenchman Richard Gasquet in the opening round with the victor to face fourth seed Dominic Thiem.

Playing in Cincinnati could well be a precursor to Murray making his grand slam singles return at the US Open starting on August 26, although the two-time Wimbledon champion may be wary of competing over best-of-five sets so soon.

Murray will face French veteran Richard Gasquet in the opening round after doubles appearances in Washington (Citi Open) and Montreal (Rogers Cup).

"I'm not expecting to move as well I used to, but I think I can move better than I am now", he said at a news conference. "I have zero pain". But that will take time.

Last August in Washington the pain in his hip led him to weep audibly in his chair after a long, three-set victory against Marius Copil. Indeed, such was the distress and pain he suffered in Australia that it seemed probable that Murray may never play at the elite level again-and he certainly believed that to be the case before taking the big decision have hip surgery for the second time.

He has chosen the Western & Southern Open to make his competitive return to singles after delighting fans and pundits alike with his nigh on miraculous doubles partnership with Feliciano Lopez at Queen's Club (they are teaming up again this week), as well as mixed doubles with Serena Williams. And then performances in practices with top singles players.

Now ranked number 325 in the world, Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery and has since played in doubles events. "I'm also going to play Beijing the week after Zhuhai", the Scot said. I haven't played many matches in the past 18 months, really.

He has said until now that the US Open is not on his radar: the gruelling five-set format would probably be a step too far at this stage of his training, though the wild cards for the last Major of the year are yet to be announced. "There's nothing for me to worry about, but I know it's easy to say that but when you get on the court, psychologically it can be tricky". "The quickest way to get up to speed is by being on the practice and match court with top players", the ATP Tour's website https://www.atptour.com/en/news/murray-cincinnati-2019-preview quoted him as saying.
