Andy Murray speaks of his delight to make comeback at ‘special place’ Queen’s
Andy Murray is all set for his return to competitive tennis and the former world No 1 admits Queen’s Club is the “perfect place to return”.
Having undergone career-saving hip resurfacing surgery in January, the three-time Grand Slam champion will make his competitive comeback in the doubles at the Fever-Tree Championships in two weeks’ time.
He will partner Spain’s Feliciano Lopez after the pair accepted a wildcard entry, and Murray says he could not have chosen a better place to make his return.

“I am really excited to return to the match court for the first time since my surgery,” said the 32-year-old. “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.”
