Andy Murray completed his extraordinary comeback to tennis on Sunday evening when the Scot and his partner, Feliciano Lopez, defeated Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram 7-6 (6), 5-7, 10-5 in the Queen's doubles final.
A tense first set saw Murray and Lopez save two set points -- one when trailing 5-4 and another in the tiebreak -- before clinching the opener 7-6 (6).
The second set was equally close, with both pairs fending off break points until Salisbury and Ram finally secured the first break of serve in the match. A championship tiebreak followed to determine the winners.
The London crowd buoyed a fatigued Lopez, 37, and Murray, who was playing his first tournament since the Australian Open in January. The pair produced a series of fine shots in the championship tiebreak and were able to wrap up the decider 10-5.
"It's been brilliant, I've really enjoyed it," Murray said of his first competition since undergoing "life-changing" hip surgery earlier this year.
"I felt very relaxed at the beginning of the week and was getting more nervous as the week went on, [but] my competitive instincts kicked in.
"My hip felt great, no pain," the three-time Grand Slam winner announced to the delight of the London faithful. "I'll try to keep progressing from here, but I'm just happy being back on the court."
