Kyle Edmund will be hoping to improve on his record against Andy Murray, with Andy winning 3 of the 4 matches against his fellow Brit. Another interesting match-up in the Henman group is James Ward and Liam Broady. The pair will compete for the first time in four years, since James won a tight clash in the Granby Challenger quarter-finals.
