Murray's comeback delayed until Thursday after Queen's washout

  • Print




Andy Murray's comeback from hip surgery has been delayed until Thursday after rain washed out the day's play at Queen's Club on Tuesday. Murray is due to play doubles at Queen's with Spain's Feliciano Lopez as the former world number one returns to action five months after hip surgery.
Murray and Lopez were scheduled to play their first round match at the grass-court event on Wednesday against top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Jean-Julian Rojer.
But the tie had to be put back until Thursday after Lopez's singles match against Marton Fucsovics was one of those which fell foul of Tuesday's weather.
With Lopez now due to play on Wednesday, Murray will have to wait another 24 hours to get back in competitive action.
When the 32-year-old Scot does eventually step back onto a tennis court it will be just 143 days after he underwent the operation in a bid to salvage his career.
The two-time Wimbledon champion tearfully announced at January's Australian Open that it may have to be his last tournament, such was the pain his chronic injury was giving him.
