The Aegon Championship, Queen's Club




Andy Murray begins his comeback after his injury lay-off at Queen's Club. How will it end? In more injury torment or ending in him regaining the trophy or perhaps somewhere in between. As long as he gets in some crucial court time and proves to be back to fitness I will be happy. Remember that last year he exited at the first stage here and yet had a great run to the final at Wimbledon proving that what happens at Queen's is not indicative of what will happen at Wimbledon.

No real threats to either player's serve in the third set until Cilic, when leading 30-0 throws in some weak shots netting regulation stuff to present the break on a plate. Murray leads 3-1.

This looks very good for Andy now and he holds to love to lead 4-1.

Cilic saves three break points on his next service game with Murray hitting an unreal winner. But Cilic clings on but still trails 4-2.

Murray stands firm on his own serve to hold serve and lead 5-2.

And Andy Murray seals the win beating Marin Cilic 5-7 7-5 6-3. He got better as the match went on whilst Cilic struggled to stay with Andy when he upped his level. That is three Queen's titles for Andy now levelling the total won by the great Jimmy Connors. That is Andy's 27th ATP title win leaving him one behind Lleyton Hewitt's total.

A good win for Andy, a little possessed during the end of the 1st and beginning of the 2nd set, but managed to calm down and focus and it all came right for him. A big lesson before Wimbledon methinks.

Very impressed with his shot making abilities on Sunday, his back looks fine and the groin stretch he sustained during the match seems uneventful thankfully.

Another week of practice on top of a good weeks training and a week of matches should put him in good stead.

Agreed Jubba. 

It was very similar to the Tsonga match the day before. Cilic took advantage of sloppy player from Andy (evidence that you need to play at a decent level to succeed at this sport) but once Andy upped his level and consistency there were no extra gears for Cilic to go to and Andy came through as winner.

Andy's serve was a little better yesterday but will still need to up his levels further if he wants to win Wimbledon. The promising thing is that he is in a phase where he gets better the longer the matches go so that should put him in good stead for the best of five format at Wimbledon.

Yep, he is getting more consistent the longer he plays, and stronger as we've all seen. Not been really tested on grass yet though, not by any of the usual suspects, I though he'd get Berdych in the final actually and that would have been a good test, but either Cilic was too good or Beardy had a bad hair day.

I don't think Cilic and Tsonga can be seen as poor or not strong opponents. They, I would say, are amongst the second and third tier opponents for Wimbledon ie possible 4th Round/QF opponents come Wimbledon and Andy beat them without consistently finding top gear. Definitely Andy will need to up that level against top tier opponents such as Nadal, Federer and Djokovic - that is when the true test will come.
