The Briton, who was knocked out in the first round at Queen's last week, was due to play France's Lucas Pouille at the Aspall Tennis Classic.

But he did admit that Murray has not had enough practise, saying: "The first match on grass is always tricky".

British duo Andy Murray and Johanna Konta both face a race against time to be fit for their first-round matches at Wimbledon on Monday. "If the weather is good I am sure we will practice". Murray has won eight titles on grass including Wimbledon past year.

Serena Williams is considered as one of the best female tennis players in the game, and she is definitely sexy.

However, the decision was reportedly called as a precaution, with Murray still plotting to appear in the second match against an as-yet-unnamed opponent on Friday.

The Scot also took a couple of days off training in the week before Roland Garros, and he went on to reach the semi-finals, where he lost in five tough sets to Stan Wawrinka. "There is no guarantee that I won't do well at Wimbledon, but it certainly would have helped to have had more matches". You need to feel confident in your body, otherwise what's the point? "I love playing on grass, it has been my most successful surface in my career and if I could get to three it would be a great achievement".

Murray reiterated that he expects to be fine for the start of Wimbledon on Monday, where he is the top seed and defending champion, but his preparation for his title defence has been far from ideal.
