Queens record Champion Andy Murray has spoken of his record five time win at the Aegon Championships and attributed his success to his new coach Ivan Lendl.
From a shaky start at The Queens club final yesterday up against Milos Raonic, Murray managed to pull back and fire some aggressive play towards his opponent.
The Canadian finalist, famous for his serve, looked set to do well from the off. He certainly didn’t seem to be making things easy for Murray as he had to fight back against Raonic’s leading set. However, as the game continued Murray was able to take hold of the reins and played to secure himself the victory.
The British Champion, who was seeded first in the contest, was the first player to break Raonic’s serve in the competition not once but two times in a row. No mean feat as Raonic had managed to make it through to the final without much competition off his serve. Murray settled the score and won 6-7, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.
With no less than five Aegon Championship titles to his name the new Queens record Holder, Murray, has secured himself a place in the history of the competition.
Following his win Murray’s coach made a break for it and didn’t stick around for the presentation leaving that to the British Champion. Murray made light of the fact in a courtside interview and said that the result was due to a good first week back with his old coach. He also stated that he entered the contest highly motivated, hinting that he had every intention of lifting the trophy in the final.
He went on to discuss the game and admitted that at the beginning he was frustrated. He also referred to his own serve and gave himself credit were it was due:
“It was frustrating to be down a set and a break but I started to return well, and my serve worked very well the last couple of sets. I played some good stuff.”
Admitting that he didn’t play well after his early lead Raonic said that he had let the match get away from him. The Canadian usually fairs well when he is ahead, but he lost his grip as the game went on. Murray did a good job turning things around and it caused the runner up to hesitate on the court.
With Murray on top form this season the 2016 Wimbledon Championships look to be within his reach. The question on everyone’s lips will be can Murray win Wimbledon? VIP will be there to see the British Champion fight for a place in the final, and you could be there too!
