Andy Murray suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Nicolas Mahut at Queen’s last week in what was his first match on grass prior to Wimbledon. However, instead of halting his preparations, Murray believes that the extra time he has got for The Championships will help him hone his strokes and prepare for the tournament well.
“When I won Queen’s last year it finished on Monday, exactly a week before Wimbledon started, so I was a little bit tired and didn’t practice too much before the tournament began,” Murray said. “Now I’ll have time to get all the hard work done, but that’s the only bonus. I’ll actually spend more time on the grass being out of Queen’s than I would have if I was still in it.”
The two-time Australian Open finalist added, “Of course I would like to have played more matches, but in the past I’ve done that and it hasn’t always translated into the success I want at Wimbledon. I often go to Melbourne without playing a competitive tournament, just training hard, and I’ve always played well there.”
