Murray plans Queens comeback

Former World No. 1 Andy Murray is planning to make his return to competitive tennis in the doubles at the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s Club later this month, according  to the BBC.

The 32-year-old has not played since the Australian Open and had a hip resurfacing operation in January.

Murray plans to play alongside Spain’s Feliciano Lopez.

The tournament in London will start on June 17 – two weeks before Wimbledon begins.

BBC tennis correspondent Russell Fuller said: “I don’t see this as the start of a doubles career but as a stepping stone.

“He’s not ready for singles at at all but I think he intends to give it a go later. It is incredibly early days. He’s only been back in full training for two weeks.

“It’s an obvious way to ease yourself back in, but who knows what will happen from here.”
