"I would imagine after here I'll get a better idea of where I'm at", Murray said at Queen's this week.
"But I'm just quite happy doing what I'm doing just now and just taking each week as it comes".
I might have had to play against those people asking me how I was, so I wasn't going to tell them that my hip was killing me and then play them the following day.
"I don't know how much he can still progress", he said. "I sort of asked a couple of people to play, but I need to wait and see how I'm feeling first, and if I feel good, then I would like to, yeah".
Cheers met a dazzling backhand smash from Murray before gasps met a tumble from the 32-year-old, but this did not deter the former world number one as he and Lopez managed to stay ahead.
"I don't care, really, either way".
"I'm sure at some stage it will come, a bit of a plateau because it's been very quick and constant improvements".
"Every chance you get to compete for your country, and I've been lucky enough to do it with my brother a few times, is brilliant". It's mental, really. That's a cool thing to be able to have done, just because of probably where I was a few months ago.
However, Murray is not reinventing himself as a doubles player. A year ago when I came on the court, I was quite emotional and stuff, because I hadn't played for a long time but didn't get loads of enjoyment out of the match.
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. I thought some of the calls were outrageous today.
"I'm getting a bit tight about asking now!"
Before the match I received plenty of messages of support from my family and friends. But this is up to him and his team that they have to make a decision on when it's going to be the right time. They just think it's a joke because nothing happens to them after the match.
According to El Confidencial, an investigation into alleged match-fixing in football involving former players Raul Bravo and Carlos Aranda, has now extended to tennis and involves a match the Lopezes lost at Wimbledon in 2017. But it was great, it went well and I'm pleased that they were there to see it. I heard it was another video assistant referee (VAR) controversy though. The calls are horrendous, but I get fined and he gets nothing.
The number of slapping of hands and fist pumping increased between Lopez and Murray as they took hold of the match and the two-time Olympic champion visibly relaxed as he found his rhythm - aided no end by the whooping and hollering from his impassioned home supporters in this usually sedate part of London.
