Lopez strongly denies match-fixing allegations

Lopez strongly denies match-fixing allegations

Andy Murray won his first title in two years as he and partner Feliciano Lopez secured the Queen's Club Championships doubles trophy.

The Murray-Herbert combination was announced by Andy Murray at Queen's Club, where the two-time Wimbledon singles victor said he would also be keen to play mixed doubles at the tournament.

Marc Lopez strongly denied the allegations in Spanish newspaper AS, saying: "We have nothing to do with it, they have no right to dirty our names like that".

But I've been rejected a couple of times so far - in the nicest possible way, of course!

"It was brilliant, I enjoyed it a lot, " the former top-ranked Murray said.

However, one suspects it will not be too long before a WTA players raises their hand...

The past couple of years have been an emotional time for me, and when it came to the Australian Open I decided I had had enough and was able to speak out about it.

"Then that will give me some information about where I'm at and maybe things I need to improve or whatever".

"I felt quite relaxed in the build-up, but we said as we were walking on to the court that we were starting to feel a bit nervous", he said.

Kinzinger said Iran has moved the situation "this time - and multiple times prior - into the kinetic military realm". The United States claims it was flying over worldwide waters, while Iran claims the drone had entered its airspace.

"This felt different to last year, because last year when I came in and played, I mean, my hip felt very average, like, I was still pretty uncomfortable and I had done a lot of training".

Murray admitted to having butterflies going into the match, the fact he had practiced just once with Lopez perhaps adding to the nerves, but the duo clapped hands to build up confidence after every point - a must for any doubles partnership - and looked increasingly solid against tops seeds Cabal and Farah, who won the doubles together in Barcelona and Rome before reaching the French Open semi-finals. I feel like I'm going to continue to progress.

It seems a long, long time since Andy Murray's tennis fans saw the roaring face, the clenched fist, and the intense tennis that has made him such a favourite at home and across the world.

In singles play, some players had to play two matches in one day due to the rain pushing back play earlier in the week, and it caused a few upsets. I sort of expected to be the worst player on the court tonight and to not feel particularly good on the court, and I was prepared to feel that way, which was probably the case in the first set.

Kyrgios lost his second match of the day to Auger-Alliasime, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3), 7-5.

"I knew some of the calls weren't going to be great". They just think it's a joke because nothing happens to them after the match.

"I'm getting a bit tight about asking now!"

For some, it affects the way they think, but it doesn't affect me in that way. I thought some of the calls were outrageous today.
