London - Andy Murray will be fit to play at the Wimbledon warm-up event at Queen's Club after missing the French Open due to a back injury, the world number two said on Wednesday.

Murray, the US Open champion and last year's beaten Wimbledon finalist, was forced to miss the clay-court grand slam after aggravating a lower back injury at the Italian Open in May.

"Barring no setbacks in the next couple of days I will be making an appearance at the club of the queen next week," Murray said on Twitter.
