London: Former world number one Andy Murray will return to the match court in doubles at the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club to be held later this month. Murray, who has not played since the Australian Open, will play with 2017 singles champion Feliciano Lopez.
The 32-year-old, winner of a record five singles titles at The Queen's Club, underwent hip resurfacing surgery in February and has been building his fitness since then. "I am really excited to return to the match court for the first time since my surgery," Murray was quoted as saying by the BBC.
"Queen's has always been a special place for me and it's the perfect place to return. It's where I won my first ATP match, my first title in Britain and on grass, and it's been my most successful tournament overall. "I'm not yet ready to return to the singles court, but I've been pain-free for a few months now.
I've made good progress in training and on the practice court, and this is the next step for me as I try to return to the tour," he added. The tournament in London will start from June 17 - two weeks before Wimbledon begins.
