Andy Murray won the Aegon Championships title at Queens for the third time, after losing the first set to Marin Cilic.

Andy Murray managed to win 5-7 7-5 6-3 and will be heading into Wimbledon full of confidence and proving to himself that he is in the best shape for the English tournament after pulling out of the French Open with a back injury. Seasoned punters betting online will be delighted to see the Irish bookmaker Paddypower having the World Number Two priced as second favourite at 3/1, with Djokovic favourite at 15/8 and French Open winner Nadal third favourite at 7/2.

The finals at Queens was quite tense, especially with the delay due to rain. Local fans would have been worried at the start with Murray losing the first set, but the British player’s serve was the influential factor in Andy staying in the game and eventually over-powering the Croat Marin and giving the fans something to cheer about after waiting for more than three hours in the rain. The final set saw Andy Murray just go into another gear and displayed his talent with some fantastic shots which had the crowd breathless.

Now Murray and his back room staff need to focus on Wimbledon, with all attention firmly fixed on his making sure his back is in perfect condition for the gruelling games on the grass courts. He will have his work cut out for him with Djokovic and Nadal in blistering form, and Andy would have seen both players at the French Open proving they both have what it takes to take the title at Wimbledon. Being interviewed after the title win at Queens, Andy confirmed that he was ‘in a good place’ and would ‘just keep working hard’ in preparation for what we all hope to be a successful Wimbledon!
