Andy Murray: 'Big blow, I'd have liked to play more matches'

Andy Murray lost in the opening match at Queen's for the first time since 2006. The World No. 1 was beaten by Jordan Thompson 7/5 6/2 and in press conference he admitted that his opponent deserved to win: 'He moves well and serves well...

two important things to do on the grass. A lot of guys struggle a little bit with the movement, but he's quick. If you serve big, you can get free points. It can be tough. He played better than me the first set there was not much in it.

I made some mistakes in the middle part of the tie-break, which gifted it to him a little bit... That wasn't a great period of the match for me there... I didn't create loads of chances, really. I didn't return particularly well.

He served big. He served well', the fifth time Queen's champion said. It's still a bad loss for Murray, who was unable to break his opponent in the whole match: 'A big blow, for sure. Obviously this tournament has given me great preparation in the past, and when I have done well here, Wimbledon has tended to go pretty well, too', Murray said.

'Not ideal obviously, but guys have in the past also gone into Wimbledon having not won lots of matches... but it certainly would have helped to have had more matches.' ALSO READ: Djokovic, Murray, Haas celebrate Father's Day
