World number one Andy Murray says he has already been in a situation to lose a first-round match at Queen's ahead of Wimbledon. The 30-year-old shockingly exited this year's Aegon Championships on Tuesday, falling to promising Jordan Thompson of Australia.
It was yet another blow for the world number one, who hasn't lived up to the expectation thus far this season. ''I lost to Nicolas Mahut in 2012 and used the extra time to play a couple of exhibition matches, and then reached my first final at Wimbledon,'' Murray recalled.
Scot Murray had winning runs at the Queen's Club in the same years he went all the way at The All England Club, 2013 and 2016. ''Winning a tournament is great and you feel good afterwards, but you can also sometimes think that your game is in a good place and maybe become a little bit more relaxed in that week beforehand,'' record five-time Queen's champion Murray added.
Murray also noted his intentions are to ''put in a lot of hard work'' in the upcoming days as he hopes to have a much more positive campaign at The Championships, July 3-16. Also read: Andy Murray: 'Big blow, I'd have liked to play more matches'
