Murray faces top seeds in tennis comeback

By AAP Newswire

Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will face Queen's Club top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah when he makes his return from hip surgery alongside Spain's Feliciano Lopez next week.

Murray, 32, is playing doubles as he takes his first steps back to the tour having undergone a hip resurfacing operation earlier this year.

He last played at the Australian Open in January.

Murray is also expected to play doubles at the Eastbourne championships the following week and at Wimbledon.

Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas is the top seed in the singles with Kevin Anderson, runner-up at Wimbledon last year, the second seed. South African Anderson skipped the clay court season.

The tournament begins on Monday.
