    Britain's Andy Murray came through his first match since a career-saving hip operation with an impressive victory in the Queen's doubles.

    Murray, 32, was seemingly set for retirement before having his hip resurfaced in January.

    Five months later the Scot was back on court alongside Spain's Feliciano Lopez at the Fever-Tree Championships.

    The pair won 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 against Colombian top seeds Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal.

    "It was brilliant. I enjoyed it a lot," Murray told BBC Sport. "I was a bit slow at the beginning and got better as the match went on.

    "I'm fortunate to be back playing again.

    "Leading up to the match I was quite relaxed but I was a bit nervous when we started walking to the court.

    "You want the nerves and the butterflies in the stomach and I had that."

    :clapping:    I really relished seeing Andy's comeback.   :oldgrin:

    Andy Murray will make a poignant return to Wimbledon after announcing he will play doubles at the All England Club.

     Murray has said he will partner with Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert, a 28-year-old who has won every grand slam men's doubles title.

    Andy also intends to play mixed doubles at Wimbledon.  Partner yet to be announced.
