Andy Murray has made it official: he's coming back. The Scot is entered to play doubles at Queen's Club, which starts June 17.
The 32-year-old had hip resurfacing surgery after the Australian Open in January. He hasn't competed since his loss to Roberto Bautista Agut in Melbourne.
Murray will team up with Feliciano Lopez on the grass lawns in London. His friends on tour, particularly Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, are excited about the news.
"It's number one for his health, and we want Andy to be healthy, more so than being a tennis player," Federer said. "But if he can play tennis on top of it, that's a super bonus. And I think all of us top guys would be thrilled to see him back on the tour."
Nadal gave similar sentiments about the three-time Grand Slam champion's return.
"So I always thought that he will find a way to try to be back, because still young and still very passionate about the game. So I'm happy to see that he gonna play again, no?" he said. "That's great news for, first, for him and for his team and family, and then for the tour by itself and then for the fans. So is good for the world of tennis. Happy for it, and especially happy for him."
Nadal and Federer faced off for the 39th time in their careers in the Roland Garros semifinals, with Nadal winning handily in three sets on his way to his 12th title in Paris.
