Feliciano Lopez: Andy Murray still has all the quality to be a singles force

Andy Murray making an entrance

Feliciano Lopez has paid tribute to Andy Murray, saying that the Brit still has the quality to be a force in singles competition.

The Spaniard will partner Murray in the Queen’s doubles this week in his first appearance since undergoing hip surgery at the start of the year.

Murray says his goal remains returning to singles once his recovery is complete and fully stress-tested, and Lopez is convinced that’s a realistic target.

“He’s a great player. As soon as you hit the ball with him, you realize that he still has the feeling, the touch.” Lopez said.

“I’m really happy that he is able to play tennis again. That is the most important thing.

“I’m very happy to share the court with him this week. It’s going to be nice, it’s going to be fun.“
