Andy Murray will play Roger Federer in an exhibition match in Glasgow on Tuesday on his return to the sport from a hip injury.
The three-time Grand Slam champion has not played a competitive match since his quarter-final exit to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon and was forced to pull out of the US Open on the eve of the tournament when the injury had not healed sufficiently.
Murray will face the world No 2, who has won seven titles this season, in a charity match, part of the Andy Murray Live fundraiser, at the SSE Hydro and will hope to show signs of his return to full fitness before building up to the new campaign.
The British No 1, who will miss the ATP Finals as the defending champion, has dropped from world No 3 to 16 in the rankings in his absence from the tour.
Federer, who has beaten Murray in his past five encounters, will use the match as an opportunity fine-tune his preparations for the season-ending ATP Finals in London, live on Sky Sports, which begins on Sunday.
The Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan and season-ending extravaganza ATP Finals at London's O2 ends another memorable year which will be covered via our website www.skysports.com/tennis with live blogs, reports, and expert analysis as the season reaches its climax.
