"So when he's been through a tough stage or period, it's good to see him back".

"I'll kind of need to wait and see what happens the next few days and chat with my team about that, because I don't know exactly what's best for me just now".

Former top-ranked Murray still had a visible limp and sometimes looked to struggle with side-to-side movement after hip surgery in January, but he had lost none of his competitive spirit.

The third set followed with more of the same from Murray, who despite playing with his usual intensity throughout the the entire game, couldn't cope with Kyrgios' forehands which were utlised with pinpoint accuracy. So I'm feeling decent, considering that.

If you wanted an ideal set of circumstances to maximize the impact of favorite Brit Andy Murray's return to tennis after almost a year, you couldn't have asked for better.

"And then I guess on a personal level he's always been really good to me, has helped me when I was younger and supported me".

"I've struggled a bit in the previous year and a half and that has taken a bit of confidence out of me but I'm trying to get that back and today was ideal".

But Murray said: "I still think I'll feel very nervous when I get back out there again just because you want to perform and you want to play well".

Andy Murray says that he is putting himself under no pressure to win his opening match at Queen's as he prepares to return to the court for the first time in a year.

My post-match routine has changed a little bit - I'm making sure I get all my recovery stuff done first as I have to take care of my body first and foremost.

"I never really get surprised when he does well".

Minutes after Indian opponent Yuki Bhambri retired at 1-6 1-3 down with a knee injury, Raonic revealed he had strained his right pectoral muscle.

"It was nice to finally get a win over him but I can't really count it", Kyrgios, who has also had injury problems to contend with this year, said on court.

Kyrgios beat Murray in three sets at Queen's. My timing, my hands are all good.

"I'm a bit stiff just now", he said.

"Kyle's been playing great", said Kyrgios. It's good to see him back, it has been pretty s****y without him.

Earlier in the day, Novak Djokovic set up a second-round match against Grigor Dimitrov at the Fever Tree Championships after beating John Millman 6-2 6-1.

Djokovic, 31, has slipped to No. 21 in the ATP rankings and his wretched run continued with an embarrassing French Open quarter-final defeat by Italian journeyman Marco Cecchinato.

Milos Raonic also progressed but later withdrew due to a shoulder injury.
