Putney's Joe Salisbury says he is looking forward to playing with his doubles partner Rajeev Ram at Wimbledon after an amazing week at the Queen's Club and Fever-Tree Championships in West Kensington, writes Ziad Chaudry.

Unfortunately the British-American pairing just fell short of claiming the ATP 500 classified doubles title losing to the stand out pairing of Feliciano López, who earlier bagged the singles title after overcoming Frenchman Gilles Simon, and former Wandsworth resident three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray 10-5 in a tie-break shoot out.

And Salisbury, who has won one doubles title this year and currently ranked 24 in the ATP World Doubles listings, admits it was no shame losing to López and comeback king Murray.

"To get to the final and play against Feli and Andy was an amazing experience," said the 27-year-old.

"They were a bit too good so congratulations to these guys."

In his first appearance at the prestigious Queen Club Wimbledon pre-warmer, Salisbury, who began playing tennis at The Roehampton Club nearby Rosslyn Park Rugby Club, and his partner in crime defeated multi-grand slam champions the Bryan brothers in getting into his 'dream' Queens Club final in which he regards as one of the best tournaments in the world.

"It's one of the best tournaments in the world'" he continued.

"So it's been an amazing week just to play here.

"We've had a great week here and played some really good tennis. Obviously we are a bit disappointed but we'll look back and realise that we played well. We are both looking forward to played at Wimbledon."
