Andy Murray has revealed that his shock loss at the Queen’s Club tournament means he now has more time to prepare for Wimbledon.
Andy Murray stated in an interview with the BBC that his loss does not in any way affect his chances at Wimbledon as he now knows he has a lot of work to do.
“I knew before the tournament kicked off that I had a long way to go and that assertion has now been validated with my performance this year. But I know I need to do better.”
An Avalanche Of Big Players Losing
Andy Murray was not the only the big player who lost out in Queens as he was joined on the losing side by Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic on Tuesday.
He revealed that he had issues with adapting to the Grass surface and it will take some time to adjust to the changes.
“Grass is an important surface but I know it will some time for me to get used to it after playing in Roland Garros. But I am practising very well so I don’t really have any excuse not to perform.”
“The state of Queen’s court a lot quicker than it used to be because of the weather, the court is a lot drier and this makes the ball move faster.
“I saw the game between Raonic against Thanasi Kokkinakis and he played very well and it is no surprise that he won the game. While Feliciano Lopez also did great against Stan Wawrinka.
I will get my game up before Wimbledon and the records will show on the court and this time we won’t rely too much on online footage when practising because it can be deceptive.
Wimbledon will kick off next month with the return of Rafael Nadal, who decided to withdraw from Queens so he can maintain his fitness.
