Fever-Tree Championships Tournament Director Stephen Farrow has paid tribute to Andy Murray as the tournament’s ‘greatest champion’ after the five-time winner revealed details of a surgery to resurface his injured hip.

Murray’s long-term plans and any associated timescale are not known at present, with his priority being to alleviate pain in his day-to-day life. Farrow said that Murray has the full support of everyone at the Fever-Tree Championships as he embarks on his recovery.

“Andy is our greatest champion,” said Farrow. "He has lifted our iconic trophy a record five times and provided countless special memories for our spectators over the last 14 years, including the Queen’s-Wimbledon double in 2013 and 2016. His first professional match-win came at The Queen’s Club in 2005, he won his first title on British soil on our centre court in 2009, and we will always have a special bond with him.

"Andy has a career-long commitment to play at the Fever-Tree Championships, and we hope that he is fit enough to join what will be a world-class line-up of players in June. Whatever happens, we are right behind him as he rehabilitates from surgery, and wish him nothing but the best.”

Murray won the title at The Queen's Club in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016. He made his return to action after nearly a year away from the sport at the Fever-Tree Championships last year. 

The 2019 edition of the Fever-Tree Championships will take place 17 - 23 June.
