World number one Murray suffered a huge shock at Queen's this week - a tournament he has won five times - after being knocked out in the first round in straight sets by lucky loser Jordan Thompson.

It was a massive disappointment for the 30-year-old, who arrived on the back of a good run to the semi-finals of the French Open at Roland Garros. He has now decided to make the trip to Fulham next week.

The three-time Grand Slam champion, who will be aiming to defend his Wimbledon crown at the All England Club next month, will be taking part in two matches over the week in what will be his first appearance there since 2014.

Murray said: "It is great to be back at The Hurlingham Club. It's a great setting and an ideal opportunity to get grass court practice ahead of Wimbledon."

Murray will be joined at Hurlingham by Milos Raonic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tomas Berdych and Lucas Pouille, who are ranked sixth, 13th, 14th and 17th in the world respectively.

The event will also see the legends of the game taking part and former British number one Greg Rusedski, two-time Grand Slam finalist Mark Philippoussis, 1986 French Open finalist Mikael Pernfors and the ever popular Mansour Bahrami have been confirmed.
