Murray excited by Queen's Club return

13 January 2015 / 10:15

Olympic champion Andy Murray has confirmed his intention to try and reclaim his Queen’s Club title in the build up to Wimbledon.

Murray is a three-time Queen’s Club Championship winner – claiming victories in 2009, 2011 and prior to his historic win in SW19 in 2013.

Last year was less than fruitful however as Murray lost his third round match with Czech Republic’s Radek Stepanek in straight sets, 7-6, 6-2.

But despite a tumultuous 2014, Murray recovered at the back-end of the season and is looking forward to returning to a competition that has produced some memorable matches in the past.

"I've had some great moments on those grass courts," said the 27-year-old.

"It's where I won my first professional match and my first title in Britain.

"When you see the names on the trophy, it shows how difficult it is to win. The year I won Wimbledon, it came a few weeks after winning at Queen's, and it's perfect preparation."
