Playing his first match since January hip surgery, Andy Murray was victorious today in Queen’s teaming with Feliciano Lopez to beat the top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 7-6(5), 6-3.

“I expected to enjoy the match because I told myself I was going to regardless of what happened,” said Murray. “To feel as well as I did there — not perfect in terms of everything like my movement, but pain-free…I enjoyed it. I feel like I’m going to continue to progress.”

Murray added that he will also play doubles at Wimbledon but with Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

“He had said to my coach that he wasn’t going to be playing doubles at Wimbledon,” said Murray. “A couple of weeks ago, [he] got in touch, said maybe [he] would like to play. I’m asssuming he spoke with his team and thought it might be a nice thing to do.”

In singles action, Diego Schwartzman shocked 2-time champion Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-4.

On a busy Thursday as the event played catch-up, several players had to play two matches.

Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas finished off Kyle Edmund then needed three sets to turn away Jeremy Chardy.

37-year-old Nicolas Mahut upset Stan Wawrinka 3-6, 7-5, 7-6(2).

Felix Auger-Aliassime beat Grigor Dimitrov then knocked out Nick Kyrgios in three sets.

Tomorrow, FAA meets Tsitsipas, Lopez takes on Milos Raonic and Murray returns in doubles.

4 Comments for Murray Wins In Doubles, Tsitsipas Takes Two, Cilic Out

Lucy Says:

Brilliant match! Maybe we are seeing the dawn of a new era with Murray, playing doubles? He is certainly experienced – look at his results in Davis Cup. Maybe a foray into the Olympics with Jamie. I would rather see him healthy and happy playing doubles, secure in the knowledge no further damage would be done. Clearly he’s lost none of those skills – but playing doubles might extend his career. Congrats to both Murray and Feli!

Margot! Come on! Margot! J-Kath! Did you see how well Andy played yesterday, those overhead shots, he is smokin’ ladies!

I am so pleased for you both. You must be thrilled.

Madmax: You evidently missed my attempt at a running comment on Andy’s double match yesterday which I promised to send to A-M and RZ. (on a different thread) —- and while Andy has his familiar determined expression I’m delighted he is currently pain free. – he plans to play doubles at Wimbledon plus mixed doubles….if he can find a female to play with him!!!!!
