Andy Murray has given a clear indication that he will be fit to return for Wimbledon after announcing plans to return for the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club.
The Scot pulled out of the French Open with a back injury that forced him to retire from the Rome Masters in May, throwing doubt on whether the World No. 2 would be in top form for the third major of the year later this month.
But despite the setbacks that have ravaged his summer so far, Murray is confident of taking his place at SW19 once again, announcing through his Twitter account his intention to appear in Wimbledon's warm-up tournament at the Queen's Club.
Barring no setbacks in the next couple of days I will be making an appearence at the club of the queen next week! #backontrack

The 26-year-old has been struggling with an ongoing back problem for most of the summer. In the second round of the Rome Masters in his match against Marcel Granollers he was forced to call a time out to receive treatment, and despite staging an impressive comeback after a poor opening set, the Scot was forced to retire after winning a tie break prior to the third.
After consulting his medical team, Murray chose to opt out of the Paris tournament with his eye on Wimbledon, the first time he has missed a major since 2007.
"There was unfortunately nowhere near enough time to get myself in an acceptable condition to play in the French," Murray told ESPN.
"It's one of the hardest decisions I've had to make, although it was the right one and the only one I could make. It is the first time I've been challenging for majors that I have had to miss one."
Murray will be looking to go one step closer to winning a major on home turf after reaching the final of last year's tournament, where he fell at the last stage to a four set victory against Roger Federer, who won his record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title.
