Andy Murray will play the Queen's doubles with Feliciano Lopez in mid June. Through a press release, the British player commented on his choice of coming back to the competition. “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. 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. 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”.
Speaking of Murray, on Eurosport Alex Corretja said: “This is the first step and means he clearly wants to test himself. Hopefully he will make it back for singles too, but I don’t expect that to happen very soon.
In my opinion, he needs to take it slowly, but he is the one that knows his body of course. He is back this quickly because he is very strong physically. He’s been working so hard for the last 15 years and that’s why now he’s able to come back sooner than expected.
The dedication he has for his conditioning is amazing – he spends hours and hours looking after his body. It’s unbelievable news and I’m very happy for him, for his fans and for the game of tennis. It’s awesome news, especially since we never knew if he would be able to make it back on a tennis court."
