SCOT tennis star Andy Murray returned to action after a month-long injury lay-off in a charity exhibition match against Swiss legend Roger Federer. The 35-year-old Federer dominated the game -- named ‘Match for Africa 3’ -- against the current World No 1 from Scotland, winning 6-3, 7-6 (7-5). The game was organised by the Roger Federer Foundation, which manages several projects in Africa.

Murray has been out of action since his surprise second-round defeat at the BNP Paribas Open early last month due to an elbow injury. The 29-year-old is expected to return to competitive tennis at the Monte Carlo Masters next week.
“I’m hoping, if I keep progressing as I have with the elbow, to play Monte Carlo,” Murray was quoted as saying by the BBC.
