However, the former world number one still believes he has a future in playing singles. It ended in the Spaniard's favour after Murray had fought back from two sets down to edge two tie-breakers.

"When I hit with Jamie and Andy on Monday, at Wimbledon, you could see that the doubles is a great option for him".

"I wasn't bothered about winning matches either because it wasn't fun. It's not a big deal". "I'd nearly pay to watch that match".

But after undergoing surgery on his troubled hip, Murray revealed he has rediscovered his love for the game.

Murray also hopes to play in the Wimbledon doubles next month, although he has not said whom he will play with. Singles again? Well that depends.

Murray, who does not expect to play singles again until after the US Open, said, "It's baby steps just now. That'll give me information about where I'm at".

Meanwhile, Matteo Berrettini built on his Stuttgart Open title from last week with another impressive win over sixth seed Nikoloz Basilashvili. I would like to, but I don't mind if I don't. "I didn't expect to be in this position", he said.

"There is less loading on the body, less movement, you still have to make some quick reactions but we felt like it was quite a nice progression from all the rehab I had been doing".

For while the competitive juices are part of Murray's DNA, he now has a sense of perspective that casts a different light on his expectations.

"Yeah, now it's just nice - I like playing tennis".

International Airlines Group signs massive Boeing 737 order in Paris
It is expected to confirm up to 200 orders for the new model, the A321XLR, at the show this week, according to Reuters. Middle East Airlines then was announced as the launch airline customer of the new plane shortly after it was unveiled.

"I am really excited to return to the match court for the first time since my surgery", Murray was quoted as saying by the BBC. I'm exactly the same. And, yeah, I want to keep playing if I can because I enjoy it.

"I'm feeling good, pretty much pain-free and enjoying just training, practising, improving all the time just now", he said. "I would love to see something different this year and hopefully it will be me", Tsitsipas said on Sunday.

And the absence of pain, absence of stress, is writ large on his face.

"I'm not yet ready to return to the singles court, but I've been pain-free for a few months now". I didn't know how I was going to feel if I went to have the operation but it has been brilliant, completely life-changing for me from where I was, and I'm looking forward to getting back out there.

"In the earliest stages, I was doing lots and lots of rehab and stuff". This is the most important thing now and I'm very happy to share the court this week with him.

He laughed. And as he reflected on that long journey from Australia to London, it was easy to see why.

"There have been a number of times over the past 18 months where I did want to stop".

"I'd say it is unlikely because I've not played many matches". It's where I won my first ATP match, my first title in Britain and on grass, and it's been my most successful tournament overall. Generally, it's because it's something that you care about and that you actually enjoy doing and it's not just to win tennis matches. "As soon as you hit a few balls with him you realise he still has the feel and the touch", Lopez said.

Judy Murray is fighting for funding from the LTA and the Scottish Government to provide the indoor courts that are vital to development in Scotland and Henman says that while facilities are only part of the answer, those kind of plans should not be ignored.

He will play alongside Feliciano Lopez against top ranked due of Robert Farah and Juan Cabal.
