Murray Set For Return At The Queen's Club

Scot to partner 2017 singles champion Lopez

Andy Murray will return to competitive tennis for the first time in six months at the Fever-Tree Championships, held at The Queen’s Club in London, from 17-23 June.

The 32-year-old Scot will compete alongside Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in the doubles draw, following his recovery from hip resurfacing surgery in late January.

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

Murray, a five-time singles champion at The Queen’s Club, has not contested a tour-level match since losing to Roberto Bautista Agut in the Australian Open second round on 14 January.
