World No. 3 #Andy Murray has been practicing with promising #Jay Clarke ahead of his exhibition match. Murray [VIDEO], 30, is set to clash against the great Roger Federer at 'Andy Murray Live' next week. The exhibition match will be held at Glasgow's SSE Hydro next Tuesday. All the money collected at the event will be donated to charities.

Tennis fans will be able to finally see Murray in action. The 30-year-old hasn't played since his quarter-final showing at Wimbledon. Back then, American Sam Querrey edged the Scot in a five-setter to reach the semi-finals. However, the world No. 3 was clearly far from his best as he was heavily bothered by his hip.

Murray made a decision to not force or rush his comeback. Murray was hoping that he would continue his season after Wimbledon. The world No. 3 remained extra cautious as Wimbledon turned out to be his last ATP event of the season.

Clarke, 19, is a promising player who is working hard to improve and become a good player. Clarke fell just short of making his debut main draw appearance this past Wimbledon. Clarke lost in the qualifying final round to Austria's Sebastian Ofner as he blew a 2-0 set lead. Clarke can surely gain and learn a lot by practicing with three-time Grand Slam champion Murray. Clarke seemed to be thrilled to have a chance to hit some balls with the world No. 3.

It proved to be a success as it all went as planned. Scottish world No. 3 Murray delighted the local crowd and fellow compatriots.

'Andy Murray Live' will be streamed live on Facebook, the world No. 3 revealed. The inaugural edition of the exhibition could have been watched on Facebook as well. It will provide a unique opportunity to Murray's fans across the world to enjoy for free, a great matchup between the Scot and Swiss Federer.

''Pumped to announce that Andy Murray LIVE presented by SSE will be broadcast LIVE on Facebook next week! I can’t wait to get back out onto the match court, and I’m looking forward to sharing the evening with all of my fans around the world on Facebook,'' the world No. 3 wrote on Facebook.

Murray preparing for his comeback

Murray is expected to recover and be ready for the beginning of the 2018 season. The world No. 3 will be looking forward to testing the condition of his troublesome hip on Tuesday. Though an exhibition -- and a clash which has the goal to collect as much as possible money for charity purposes -- it's just what Murray needs at the moment. It remains to be seen how will it all go for Murray. #No 3
