Andy Murray’s form received a timely boost at the French Open, and with his closest rival Novak Djokovic badly slipping away, the Brit looks in a strong position as he slides into the grass court season.
Murray will have a particularly strong field to contend with at Queen’s however, with fiery Nick Kyrgios, reigning US champion Stan Wawrinka and a resurgent Rafael Nadal all signing up to compete in the championships.
This tournament is always an ideal warm-up for Wimbledon, the short, sharp three-set format allowing players to get a feel for the faster surface without (hopefully) expending too much energy.
The AEGON Championships. Sue Barker introduces coverage of the opening day of the famous grass-court tournament, as the men's singles gets under way at Queen's Club. Current world number one Andy Murray won here last year for the fifth time in his career, surpassing the record set by seven other players, including the likes of John McEnroe, Boris Becker and Andy Roddick, to become the outright most successful man in the tournament's history. Murray began his campaign last year with a triumph against Nicolas Mahut, edging through in two tie-breaks to reach the last 16. With commentary by Andrew Castle, Andrew Cotter, John Lloyd and Peter Fleming, and reports from John Inverdale.
