Andy Murray to play doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez at Queen's

Andy Murray is set to make his return to tennis later in June, playing in the doubles at the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club.

The three-time grand slam singles winner has been out of action since a five-set defeat to Roberto Bautista-Agut at the Australian Open. Having struggled for over a year with a hip injury, he underwent resurfacing surgery after the loss in Melbourne and has spent the following months recovering.

But the Scot says that he is now "pain-free" and is plotting a return to tennis, initially in the doubles with Spanish player Feliciano Lopez. It is thought that this is not him launching a new career in doubles, but instead a stepping stone as the 32-year-old tries to make a return to singles.

Speaking about his decision to play at Queen's with Lopez, the former world number one said: "I'm not yet ready to return to the singles court, but I've been pain-free for a few months now. I've made good progress in training and on the practice court, and this is the next step for me as I try to return to the tour."

With Murray set to return to the court, Sky Bet are offering special odds on what he may or may not achieve in the grass court season alongside Lopez. We have taken a look at the betting markets in question to see how the odds suggest he will do.

Murray and Lopez tipped to win a match at Queen's Club

The majority of the odds which have been made available are to do with Murray and Lopez's chances at Queen's. Whilst this is a duo that have never previously played a competitive doubles match together before, Sky Bet are tipping them to at least win a match with odds of 4/6 available.

In fairness, Murray/Lopez winning a match is quite likely when you look deeper into the facts. The Spaniard is a seasoned doubles player who won the 2016 French Open alongside Marc Lopez and reached the final of the 2017 US Open, whilst also reaching a career high ranking of ninth in the world.

As for Murray he played alongside his brother and won three doubles matches to catapult Great Britain to the 2015 Davis Cup title, whilst he also won a mixed doubles silver medal in the 2012 Olympics playing alongside Laura Robson.

On the face of it Lopez and Murray could form a decent doubles partnership, so what are their chances of winning the title? Well it's unlikely according to Sky Bet, with odds of 16/1 on the market for them to win Queen's which is probably fair given this is their first time playing together.

Odds are also available for Andy to play against his brother Jamie, who is a doubles specialist and former world number one. It is 7/1 currently for the brothers to play against each other at some point during Queen's, although those odds could change when the draw is made and if they are placed in the same section. Incidentally you can also back Andy to beat Jamie at 14/1.

Odds against Andy Murray winning Wimbledon doubles title

As well as the odds being offered for Murray and Lopez's campaign at Queen's, Sky Bet have also priced up their chances at the next grand slam of the season - Wimbledon.

Whilst the duo are yet to confirm whether or not they will be playing together at the All England Club, it is likely that if they enjoy playing at Queen's and have some success that they will try to do so.

Should they decide to play, Sky Bet are offering odds of 16/1 for them to win the title at SW19 - meaning they consider them to have the same chance winning there as they do at Queen's.

There is also a chance that he could play mixed doubles too, with Johanna Konta a potential partner. The French Open semi-finalist was asked about potentially teaming up with him and didn't rule anything out.

“He would have to ring me and ask me. I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it," said Konta.

"But it would be hard to say no to Andy. Let’s see how my body is doing.”
