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.

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

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.
