Andy Murray will make a poignant return to Wimbledon after announcing he will play doubles at the All England Club.
"He hasn't played much doubles, but when he played he did very well", added the 37-year-old.
He told the BBC immediately after the match that he felt the nerves. The light was fading, the sap was rising, the grass was becoming a little greasy.
Crucially, Murray felt in good shape afterwards, with no pain in his hip.
Kyrgios lost his second-round match a few hours later, though, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3), 7-5 to Auger-Aliassime. I love playing on this court, it's a brilliant place to play tennis. "That's what you need". "The most important thing is that Andy is healthy and back on court". Murray and Melo may not have many matches together under their belt but both have proven capable of playing high-level tennis on grass.

However, Murray is not reinventing himself as a doubles player. After some thought, however, he and his team changed their minds.
"I started to play better in the second and have zero discomfort in my hip which would not have been the case previous year, I would have been aching and throbbing".
His fight to become world number one and a three-time Grand Slam champion took a big toll on his body, but this was a Murray who certainly looked "pain-free" as he suggested earlier this month. Then we tried to play doubles.
"I just don't think, at this level of sport, that we should have line judges and umpires that aren't making the right decisions".
