The Baseline Player of the Week: Andy Murray

Andy Murray made a victorious return in the doubles at Queen's

Murray and Lopez hadn't played together in a tournament before beating top-seeded Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah on Thursday.

Britain's Andy Murray (R) and Spain's Feliciano Lopez pose with the trophy after their win in the men's doubles final tennis match against United States player Rajeev Ram and Britain's Joe Salisbury at the ATP Fever-Tree Championships tournament at Queen's Club in west London on June 23, 2019. He and Lopez defeated Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury 7-6 (8-6), 5-7, 10-5 in the doubles final - not long after Lopez outlasted Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (7-2) in the singles.

"My hip felt great, no pain". If I keep progressing, I would like to try to play singles.

"But then I think I started to play better in the second and started to serve a bit better, see the returns a little bit better and things".

Goffin, playing in his first final since 2017, made life hard for Federer in the first set, forcing him to save three break points without having to face any of his own, but the world No. 3 upped his level in the tiebreak and maintained it from there to win his 102nd tour-level title in just over an hour. "Like, I want it to last for, you know, a long time, because it's nice feeling like this". "I don't know. I need more time to reflect on everything that happened this week". But I feel optimistic about the future. Murray and Lopez, though, were not to be denied and, despite some nervy moments in the champions tie-break, they came through and just about had the energy to embrace each other and raise a hand to the crowd at the end.

Clearly they are a slick doubles partnership, but they could never have imagined facing three-time grand slam victor Murray and Lopez, himself a singles victor at Queen's, in the first round.

The three-time Grand Slam champion's triumph comes after what he described as "life-changing" hip surgery earlier this year. "After five months of rehab because of its metal danced Murray hip, back in the game".

Amazon Explores Having Its Drones Provide 'Home Surveillance' For Customers
Indeed, while Amazon has been talking up drone delivery since 2013, it has never quite managed to get off the ground. The patent states the cameras could capture infrared, thermal or night-vision imaging, as well as audio.

The fact that Lopez had been compelled to issue a fierce denial of links to allegations of match-fixing in Spain a day earlier was not ideal preparation either.

Lopez, who must have been running on empty, somehow conjured up a series of stunning winners in the match tie-break to secure his own personal double and an unlikely, but welcome, victory for Murray.

This was no Wimbledon singles epic, but it was no exhibition either.

Murray will now move on to Eastbourne before playing at Wimbledon where he will be partnered by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

"I'm sure at some stage it will come, a bit of a plateau because it's been very quick and constant improvements". And at times, even as far as just two months ago.

British number one Kyle Edmund says he is delighted to see Andy Murray playing competitive tennis once again.

There was just one break in the second set, as Murray and Lopez, serving to stay in the set at 5-6, faltered.
