Andy Murray has completed a remarkable winning return to action with victory in the doubles at Queen’s Club alongside Feliciano Lopez.
The Scot, who was close to retiring five months ago due to a serious hip injury, strolled off with the silverware at his first attempt back.
Murray and Lopez beat Britain’s Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram of the United States 7-6 5-7 10-5 after a third-set match tie-break.
Murray had insisted after their first-round victory that winning was not his number one priority this week at the London event.
Only five months ago, the former world number one tearfully announced that the Australian Open could be his last tournament.
He said: ‘I didn’t know what to expect when I had the operation at the start of the year but now I’m enjoying my tennis and I’m pain free.
‘Obviously you always want to do more and be better prepared but you know I’ve got a decent amount of time on the grass and I’ve practised quite a lot of doubles and I should be in decent shape.’
