Andy Murray will make his competitive return from hip surgery later this month at the Queen’s Club grasscourt tournament where he will play in the doubles event. “I am really excited to return to the match court for the first time since my surgery,” Murray was quoted on the Lawn Tennis Association website.

“Queen’s has always been a special place for me and it’s the perfect place to return. It’s where I won my first ATP match, my first title in Britain and on grass, and it’s been my most successful tournament overall.”

Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray, 32, will likely partner Spain’s, Feliciano Lopez. He has not played since the Australian Open in January, after which he had a hip-resurfacing operation.

Murray’s return to the court will raise hopes that he could appear at Wimbledon, although he played down his chances of appearing in the singles there. “I’m not yet ready to return to the singles court, but I’ve been pain-free for a few months now,” he said.

“I’ve made good progress in training and on the practice court, and this is the next step for me as I try to return to the tour.”
