The Battle of the Brits will be staged behind-closed-doors without fans from June 23-28th at the National Tennis Centre in London, the Lawn Tennis Association announced today.

"We're excited to be hosting Jamie_Murray's tournament 'Schroders Battle of the Brits' at the National Tennis Centre," the LTA announced.






Great Britain's top-ranked players—28th-ranked Daniel Evans and 44th-ranked Kyle Edmund—will join the Murray brothers competing for both singles and doubles crowns.

The six-day tournament aims to raise "a minimum of £100,000" for NHS Charities Together.

The event will be televised exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland and on Eurosport and Tennis Channel in the United States.

This will be Andy Murray's first competitive appearance since his singles win in the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid on November 20th.




The two-time Olympic gold medal champion underwent a second hip surgery on January 28th, 2019 and was subsequently sidelined for five months. Murray made a triumphant comeback partnering Feliciano Lopez to win the Queen's Club doubles crown before beating Stan Wawrinka in the Antwerp final to collect his 46th career title.

The 33-year-old Murray missed the start of the 2020 season due to a pelvic injury. Murray was aiming to return at the Miami Open in March, but the coronavirus crisis caused the sport's shutdown in March.
