Murray, who has been sidelined for nearly a year since losing in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last July, will make his long-awaited return against Australia's Nick Kyrgios in the first round at the Queen's Club tournament in London on Tuesday.
However, 342 days after his last appearance, the two-time Wimbledon champion began to feel the pace of the two hours and 39 minute match as Kyrgois bossed the tiebreak. 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.
Kyrgios and Murray are good friends, and the Scotsman was not expecting to win, but came up against an opponent who at times did not look interested in playing as he shook his head throughout the match.
"It was very good to see him back out there but it was a very awkward match for me", Kyrgios said afterwards.
"If he is feeling good then I don't see any reason why not", he said.
"I don't know the state of his hips", Djokovic said.
"But other guys, if I'm up 30, like 30-all or have a match point, I'm probably going to be a bit psyched up. I wouldn't rule out not playing a tournament next week and trying to get matches like in an exhibition tournament, as well, to get ready for Wimbledon", Murray told a press conference.
"I played well against Roger last week".
Following the high of winning that first set came a sudden low as after losing his first two service games the Briton found himself 3-1 down. I wouldn't say we played unbelievable today, I played OK.
"I feel like I'm in good form on the grass". My timing, my hands are all good. The Australian Open semi-finalist beat Ryan Harrison of the U.S. 7-6 (7-4) 6-4. It was good to finally get a win over him but I don't really take it as a win this one.
Djokovic, who lost to Italian giant-killer Marco Cecchinato in the quarter-finals at Roland Garros earlier this month, was rampant in a 6-2 6-1 win.
