Andy Murray made his long-awaited return from injury at Queen's as he steps up his preparation for Wimbledon.

Having been out of action since Wimbledon last year due to a hip injury, Murray looks to have got his timing spot on as he aims to win the most prestigious prize in tennis for a third time.

And his record at Queen's isn't bad either, with the Scot having won it on five occasions.

This year's tournament hasn't gone as planned, though, with Murray handed a tough draw against the volatile Nick Kyrgios in his comeback match.

Despite winning the first set 6-2, Murray couldn't maintain his impressive start and eventually lost in three sets to the Australian no.1.

With the match lasting over two-and-a-half hours, fans and journalists were keen to see how Murray coped with a first match of the year that was probably tougher than he hoped for.

And Kyrgios has since revealed what Murray said to him after their contest.

"We’re good mates it’s great to see him back and healthy," the 23-year-old said in his on-court interview.

"At the end of the match I asked him if he was feeling alright and if he was feeling ok and he said yes.

"That’s the most important thing. It was good to finally get a win over him but I don’t really take it as a win this one.

"I was expecting him to come out and see the ball well. He’s a legend of the sport I don’t think he needs much time out on the match courts to sort of feel his rhythm.

"From the get go he came out pretty well and I wasn’t expecting anything less to be honest."

On his own physical woes, he added: "I was out for two-and-a-half months so I’m feeling good.

"I’ve been entertaining since I was kid. I’ve got bad and good things but I’m never going to change."

Good to hear that Murray came through unscathed in his first match for a while.

His real test is yet to come, though, as he aims to battle past three-time champion Novak Djokovic, world no.1 Rafael Nadal and reigning champion Roger Federer in South London.
