Murray said: “This year is going to be even bigger and better and I am so pleased to be able to bring Roger to play in Scotland for the first time – he will get a chance to see for himself just how enthusiastic Scottish fans are, and what a great venue The SSE Hydro is.

“It is also important for me to be able support Unicef again this year, and to help a different local charity as well.”

He added: “Roger is one of the greatest players of all time, and has beaten me lots of times, but if the crowd is anything like it was here in 2016 or at the recent Davis Cup ties, I don’t think he stands a chance!

“The crowd can really lift you when you’re on court, especially when the match isn’t going your way. There is no doubt that there will be a lot of Roger Federer fans in the crowd, but hopefully there will be more cheering for me on the night.”
