Andy Murray has revealed he will play alongside France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the doubles at Wimbledon next month.
Murray underwent a hip resurfacing operation in January but made a winning return to action on Thursday alongside Feliciano Lopez at Queen's Club.
The two-time Wimbledon champion will concentrate on doubles for the time being to avoid putting undue pressure on the joint and he has confirmed that he will play with Herbert in the men's competition.
"[Herbert] is a brilliant doubles player," Murray told BBC Sport. "He hadn't planned on playing doubles at Wimbledon this year. In the last couple of weeks he chatted with his coach and thought it would be a nice opportunity.
"I told him my expectations are pretty low and it worked itself out."
Murray and Lopez enjoyed a straight-sets victory against Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal and the former world number one is delighted to be back in action and without pain.
"Physically I couldn't extend my leg for the last 18 months, two years. My walking gait was terrible - I wasn't limping because I wanted to.
"Now I have zero discomfort and no pain after the match."
