    (27 June 2019) BBC Report: Andy Murray’s dream comeback from potentially career-ending hip surgery ended with a fairytale triumph with playing partner Feliciano Lopez in the doubles at Queen’s. Briton Murray and Spain’s Lopez beat Briton Joe Salisbury and American Rajeev Ram 7-6 (8-6) 5-7 10-5. The Scot, 32, thought he might not play again before having his hip resurfaced in January but is now “pain free”. Lopez, 37, added the doubles to the singles title he won earlier on Sunday. Left-hander Lopez, who beat France’s Gilles Simon in three sets, is the first man since Australia’s Mark Philippoussis in 1997 to win both the singles and doubles titles at Queen’s in the same year.
