Dan Evans: I will play doubles with Andy Murray at Wimbledon if he asks me

British tennis player Dan Evans has publicly acknowledged that he would be more than willing to partner fellow compatriot Andy Murray at Wimbledon. Murray, 32, is set to return to competitive action this week at the Queen's Club.

The former world No. 1 underwent a hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January. Murray, a record five-time Queen's champion, will play doubles at the Queen's Club with Feliciano Lopez. If nothing goes wrong in Queen's, Murray will also play doubles in Eastbourne and then Wimbledon.

The 32-year-old still hasn't decided who will be his Wimbledon partner. In their first and lone appearance as a doubles team, Murray and Evans made the Indian Wells Masters round-of-16 in 2017. Back then, the Britons beat Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez in the first round before losing to Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau.

"I enjoyed playing with him (Murray) last time,’ Evans said, per Metro UK. "I never knew that, so that’s the first. I haven’t been asked. If he asks, obviously I’ll play with him. "Yeah, it’s a no-brainer. He’s such a good tennis player. So, yeah."
