Andy Murray on a Queen’s quest. After securing his first Rome Masters title and ending second-best at the clay courts of Roland Garros, he’s back on the grass court for a fifth title.
Winning the Queen’s Club top spot 4 times, Andy is well-poised to share a record with John McEnroe with the most number of title wins for the Queen’s Club.
Andy Murray secured the first set of his semi-final match against Marin Cilic at the Aegon Championships. But not without having a hard time dishing out forehands and serves against Cilic.
Meanwhile, Andy’s coach Ivan Lendl showed a big toothy grin, uncharacteristic as the match progressed, The Guardian notes.
As the second set approached, Marin Cilic was determined to get the game back on his side. Cilic launches an attack and beats Murray at 6-4. However, the match yields in Murray’s favor as he ends Cilic’s championship journey.
At the end of the game, Murray praised Cilic for holding well against his menacing services.
“I got a little fortunate on some shots. On this surface, the serve is an important shot. Hopefully I can serve like that tomorrow. It’s great to get to the final again,” Murray adds, referring to his finals game against Milos Raonic.
Meanwhile, Raonic beat Australian Bernard Tomic with an easy 6-4 6-4 win.
As it stands, Murray already has 4 Queen’s Club titles to his name earned in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015.
He is also one of the few lucky ones who has brought home a back-to-back Queen’s Club and Wimbledon title.
Andy Murray will play against Milos Raonic for his fifth Queen’s Club title this Sunday at 2:00PM BST.
This will serve as a warm up for Andy Murray who is also looking to secure the Wimbledon title in July.
