Andy Murray to play doubles with Pierre-Hugues Herbert at Wimbledon

Great Britain's Andy Murray has announced that he will play doubles at Wimbledon with France's Pierre Herbert. Murray, 32, made a return to competitive action at the Queen's Club this Thursday. Murray and partner Feliciano Lopez knocked out top-seeded Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in what was the Scot's first match since undergoing a hip resurfacing surgery in January.

The former world No. 1 also intends to play doubles in Eastbourne next week. The three-time Grand Slam champion has chosen Brazilian Marcelo Melo to play with in Eastbourne. It waa a mistery who would be Murray's partner at Wimbledon until the Scot revealed it during his Queen's post-game interview.

Murray chose a strong partner as Herbert won the 2016 Wimbledon title with Nicolas Mahut. Per Stuart Fraser, Murray also asked some players from the WTA tour about playing with him in the Wimbledon mixed doubles event. Unfortunately, the Scot is still searching for a mixed doubles partner as he has been turned down by several women. Murray hopes to make a singles comeback before this season ends.
