Andy Murray has been so pleased with his comeback at Queen’s this week that he has raised the prospect of returning to play singles as early as August.
The 32 year-old won the Fever Tree Championships with Feliciano Lopez on Sunday, and then suggested he might bring forward plans for a return to playing on his own.
‘Two options, play doubles through US Summer and practise singles with the guys, or I take a longer break after Wimbledon and get myself ready for singles and try to play close to the US Open,’ he said.

‘I don’t anticipate it would be much longer than that.’
He also revealed that he was open to playing mixed doubles with either of the Williams sisters at Wimbledon.
‘I’d be up for either the Williams sisters, but they are both very busy. They normally play doubles as well,’ he said, before adding that world women’s doubles No 1 Kristina Mladenovic had been among those to turn him down.
He expects to have a partner sorted within the next few days.
