ANDY Murray hopes to banish any fears he will miss Wimbledon by playing at Queen’s Club

The British number one and world number two is quietly confident he is on track to appear at the Aegon Championships next week.

Murray pulled out the French Open in a bid to improve a long-standing back problem.

He has always been targeting the traditional Wimbledon warm-up tournament for his return and even tweeted: “Barring no setbacks in the next couple of days I will be making an appearance at the club of the queen next week! £backontrack”

The Aegon Championships begin on Monday, exactly two weeks before the start of Wimbledon.

Murray has admitted he has “been dealing” with his back trouble “on and off for 18 months”.

The 26-year-old said: “It’s worse on certain surfaces and in certain conditions and when it flares up it’s tough to have it calm down.

“It has obviously been tough for me on the clay over the last couple of years.

“It’s just something I have been having to deal.”
