Andy Murray has entered next month's Zhuhai Championships and China Open as he prepares to make his singles return in Cincinnati on Monday.

The three-time Grand Slam victor and 2012 Olympic champion Murray gained a wildcard entry to the ATP Masters 1000 tennis event in OH, with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic also amongst the field.

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

Andy Murray, of Britain, smiles after practice at the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament, Sunday, Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019, in Mason, Ohio. "That's just me not running for a ball, which I did do that better at the end of the match".

Now with a metal covering on part of his hip, Murray says he is pain-free but knows it will take time to regain his agility and movement around the court.

Instead, the three-time major champion is back to playing singles at a Masters event. 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.

Murray began playing doubles at Queen's Club in June, winning that grass court title with Feliciano Lopez.

The American underwent the same resurfacing procedure as Murray in mid-2018 and made a solid return to competition.

"Obviously I'll find out on the court tomorrow if I have doubts about my movement and how my hip and stuff is feeling, but I've done what I could to make that easy on myself", Murray said.

The Frenchman has moved up ten ATP rankings places as a result to 56 and looks to be in good shape as he faces a player who has also spent a large portion of this year off the tour following surgery. At some stage you have to take the step to try to play.

But he admitted: "It's different playing matches".

"My team felt this was the time, that's why I'm giving it a go".

Murray is yet to rule himself out of the US Open but confirmed he will feature at the Zhuhai Championships, which starts on September 23, before playing at the China Open in Beijing a week later.

"We were hoping to maybe hold a wild card until a little bit closer to the time to see how I feel and get some matches hopefully and a bit of practice", Murray - the 2012 US Open champion - said. "I've got some great memories from playing in Beijing, it's a really interesting city, and I'm looking forward to heading back there again!" "Can he get into the top 100 or 50?"
