CORRECTED-Tennis-Murray to play Wimbledon, faces Paire first round

(Corrects paragraph 3 to show Paire was last opponent Murray deafeted at Wimbledon, not last opponent)

LONDON, June 29 (Reuters) - Twice former champion Andy Murray has decided to play at Wimbledon after his recent return from a hip injury.

The 31-year-old Britain, who has played only three matches in the past year, made no prior announcement but his name featured in Friday’s draw.

Unseeded Murray, ranked 156th, will play France’s Benoit Paire in the first round. Paire was Murray’s last match victory at Wimbledon, with Murray beating him in the fourth round last year before losing to Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals.
