Andy Murray had a perfect warm-up to Wimbledon capturing his fifth career Queen’s title. The World No. 2 now sets his sights on his most important event of the year at Wimbledon where he will open his quest for a second title a week from today.
“It’s obviously good preparation to win the event right beforehand, but I still have eight days until my first match there,” Murray said Sunday. “So there’s time to make things better and there is also time to mess things up. If I have five rubbish days of practice and don’t put everything into it and concentrate on what I’m trying to do and get better, then, you know, I can go into Wimbledon feeling rubbish.
“So it’s been great, but I’m aware that I need to stay on it these next seven days. If I do that, then, you know, I’ll put myself in a good position.
“But things can change very, very quickly in an individual sport. You know, if I have a few rubbish days, I can’t rely on anyone else to do those practice days for me. So I need to work hard next week. If I do that, I’m in a good position.”
Murray’s plan to is practice at Wimbledon Monday, Tuesday and Saturday if the weather allows.
The Wimbledon draw is released on Friday. Murray will be the No. 2 and will open play next Tuesday. He’s made the finals at his last four tournaments winning Rome and now Queen’s.
