Andy Murray will continue his comeback at the Eastbourne International next week after accepting a wildcard. The three-time grand slam champion was beaten by Nick Kyrgios at Queen's Club on Tuesday in his first match since undergoing hip surgery.

Murray said that there is a chance he could play at Eastbourne and miss Wimbledon after his loss to the Australian. The former world number one will be in the draw at Devonshire Park and it remains to be seen if he plays in his home major the following week.

"I'm looking forward to getting some more time on the grass courts at Eastbourne this week. I played Davis Cup there in 2010 and I know the courts and facilities there are excellent. It was good to get back to competition at Queen's this week, and I'm hoping to build on that next week at Devonshire Park," said the Brit.

Stan Wawrinka also accepted a wildcard to step up his Wimbledon preparations in Sussex.
