Feliciano Lopez is looking forward to playing in doubles with Andy Murray at Queen's. The Spanish player said: "Andy is always welcomed in Madrid. We would like to have him. It's a lot of time left because we do not know what will happen, if he will play pain-free and he manages to play singles.
Hopefully it's like this." Lopez added: "Of course, he is one of the greatest players ever and he is still playing great. But first of all I want to say that I’m very happy that he is able to play tennis again.
This is the most important thing now. And I’m very happy to share the court this week with him. It’s going to be nice, it’s going to be fun, I hope. But the most important thing is that he is healthy again and we are very happy to see Andy back on the tennis court.’ Andy Murray recalled the tough times he went through due to a hip injury.
The British player felt pain even in his daily life. "Obviously playing tennis was very painful. But even things like going out in the garden and trying to run around with my kids, or just going for a walk with them, my hip on my mind because every was always single step I took was painful.
It was just consuming me the whole time. I don't think I realised just how much it was affecting me, and my general well-being and happiness, until recently. Even sitting at the dinner table, my hip was aching. Throbbing. It was always there - even when I was sleeping. It just wasn't fun. There weren't many things I could do."
