Andy Murray's return to competitive action has been delayed until Thursday after rain washed out Tuesday's play at Queen's Club.

The 32-year-old is playing in the doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez after five months out and a hip operation.

The pair's match against Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah was due to be played on Wednesday.

However, Kyle Edmund's match against Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of several to take its place in the order of play.

British number one Edmund had expected to get his Queen's campaign underway on Tuesday, only to be thwarted by persistent rain.

British number three Dan Evans' match against Stan Wawrinka was also carried over until Wednesday.

Juan Martin del Potro, Nick Kyrgios and Grigor Dimitrov are among the other players to have their schedules disrupted.

More rain is forecast for Wednesday, although with drier spells in the afternoon.

It is only third time in the tournament's 18-year history that an entire day's play has been lost to rain.

The tournament's showpiece court was briefly revealed midway through the afternoon but more rain brought the covers back across.

The day's play at the Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham, which features some of the world's best women's players, was brought to an early end by rain.

Wednesday's Centre Court order of play:

Juan Martin del Potro (Arg) v Denis Shapovalov (Can)

Stan Wawrinka (Swi) v Dan Evans (GB)

Stefanos Tsitsipas (Gre) v Kyle Edmund (GB)

Grigor Dimitrov (Bul) v Felix Auger-Aliassime (Can)

Matches to start at 12:00 BST
