Murray hoping to make the most of last few competitions

Pammachio Corsino | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:40

Last year, the Aegon Championships was voted ATP-500 Tournament of the Year by the players - the fourth successive year that the event has received a tournament of the year award. As with all grand slams, upsets are commonplace at Wimbledon: Milos Raonic knocked Federer out of last year's competition, while then world No.1 Novak Djokovic succumbed to 26th seed Sam Querry. Last weekend, Nadal impressively won his 10th French Open.

He added: "Most of the players are travelling with physios now, spending a lot more time working in the gym to protect their bodies from the kind of pounding you give it on the court as well".

But Murray is sure to face stiff competition with the likes of US Open champion Stan Wawrinka, 2014 victor Grigor Dimitrov, and last year's runner-up Milos Raonic all vying for the top prize.

Murray became the first Briton to win the tournament a few times since Francis Gordon Lowe, who was champion in 1913, 1914 and 1925. (I'll) Be totally professional and take every tournament as seriously as I can.

'There's still work to be done, so, I've prepared the best I can, and I definitely need to do everything right.


Nadal said: "I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen's next week". I hope the French Open is a turning point. That's why, after the French Open, I didn't take a long break.

"Had it not gone well in Paris, I would have come into the grass court season low on confidence and low on matches", he explained.

The 26-year-old big serving Canadian, runner-up to British star Andy Murray at both Queen's and then Wimbledon in 2016, told The Times he feels even better having recovered from a hamstring injury which he said had been "exhausting mentally".

Del Potro withdrew from the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships this month and will not make his return yet, perhaps aiming to arrive at Wimbledon in the best shape possible. Hopefully I'll get some good matches in at Queen's to set myself up for a good run.
