Murray completes fairytale return, Lopez claims 2 titles

Murray completes fairytale return, Lopez claims 2 titles LONDON — Andy Murray completed a fairytale return from hip surgery by winning the Queen's Club doubles title with Feliciano Lopez, who ended Sunday with two titles after earlier winning the singles title as well. The Spaniard is the first man to win both titles at the grass-court tournament in London since Mark Philippoussis in 1997. Murray spent five months away from the sport until this week. He and Lopez defeated Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury 7-6 (6), 5-7, 10-5 in the doubles final — not long after Lopez outlasted Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2) in the singles. Murray capped a remarkable week 146 days after undergoing what he hopes was career-saving hip surgery.

Well I remember, I remember, don't worry, how could I ever forget It's the first time and the last time we ever met But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don't fool me Because the hurt doesn ' t show, but the pain still grows Some stranger to you and me.

LONDON — Andy Murray says he is playing tennis "pretty much pain-free" and is hoping to compete in singles "at some stage this year."

The three-time Grand Slam champion says he doesn't want to put a time frame on when his return to singles would be.

Murray says he is "quite happy just now so I don't need to play singles after Wimbledon or at the U.S. Open. If I can, that would be brilliant, but I don't think that's going to be the case. I think it's going to take a bit longer."

Murray underwent hip surgery in January, soon after a tearful news conference at the Australian Open when he said the tournament could be his last after almost two years of injury problems.

The British player is competing in the doubles with Feliciano Lopez at the Queen's Club grass-court event next week. He then plans to play doubles at Wimbledon.

The Latest: French Open women's final could be pushed back.
PARIS — The Latest on the French Open (all times local): ___ 6:15 p.m. Tournament director Guy Forget says it is possible that the women's singles final at the French Open could be delayed a day because of the rain that has jumbled the schedule. Forget says that he would rather not postpone the women's championship match from Saturday to Sunday. But he adds: "If we have no other choice, that's what we'll do." The last two women's quarterfinals were washed out Wednesday, moving them to Thursday. That means the semifinals needed to be shifted from Thursday to Friday, when Forget says the forecast calls for more rain. More bad weather could send the women's semifinals to Saturday.
