(Reuters) - World number one
Andy Murray will play two exhibition matches at next week's Aspall
Tennis Classic event in Hurlingham as he steps up preparations for
his title defense at Wimbledon in July.
The 30-year-old has struggled to impose himself this year and did
not win any of his five clay competitions, losing out in the
semi-finals at the Barcelona and French tournaments.
Murray made an early exit at Queen's Club last week and is yet to
add to his Dubai Open title triumph in March.
"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 told the event
The Hurlingham Club event starts on June 27 and ends three days
before Wimbledon commences on July 3.
