Andy Murray thumbs up

Andy Murray has made a dream return to tennis, winning the doubles competition at Queen’s with Feliciano Lopez.

Murray admitted after his first round win that he was not expecting much success this week, insisting it was just really about building up his fitness again after hip surgery.

However, he and Lopez, who also won the single’s competition earlier in the day, managed to go all the way, vanquishing Rejeev Ram and Joe Salisbury. 7-6( 8-6), 5-7, 10-7.

Lopez, who is the first man to win the singles and and doubles at Queen’s since Pete Sampras, told Murray afterwards: “Man, we are just so happy to have you back on the tennis court.”

Murray added: “Feliciano was brilliant. An amazing win in the singles and even at the end of the mach there he came up with some amazing serves and brilliant returns.”

“It’s been brilliant,” he added on his comeback week.

“I’ve really enjoyed it. I felt very relaxed at the beginning of the week and then I felt more nervous. My competitive instincts were kicking in.

“My hip felt great. No pain. I’ll just try to keep playing.”
