Murray was taking the first steps of his tentative comeback from what he hopes was career-saving hip surgery 143 days ago. It was even longer ago that he was breaking down Cabal and Farah are a slick combination but couldn't handle what came at them, with Murray volleying like a doubles specialist.

Lopez held serve to level the set, and Skupski and Murray followed suit to take it into a tie-break. A swashbuckling Murray backhand from the baseline put them 5-2 up and the Scot wrapped up a 6-4 7-6 (7-3) victory with a smash.

Lopez and Murray opted to stay on court, waiting for reigning Queen's champions Henri Kontinen and John Peers.

Murray: I'm optimistic about future

Murray: I'm optimistic about future Andy Murray says the manner of his comeback victory in the men's doubles at the Fever-Tree Championships has left him “optimistic” about his future in tennis. The former world No 1 produced moments of vintage shot-making, which has been a pivotal attribute during his career, and most importantly showed no discomfort during his first competitive encounter since undergoing a hip resurfacing operation 143 days ago, following the Australian Open in January.

Asked whether he has surprised himself on his comeback, Murray, said: "I didn't know what to expect, and obviously I had tough, tough draw, as well, playing the top seeds in the first match and [having] never played with Feliciano before. I didn't have high expectations at all."I think things have probably got a little bit better maybe with each match, as well.
