Queen’s 2015: Andy Murray happy to come through tricky opener

Andy Murray beats Yen-Hsun Lu in straight sets to reach the second round of the Aegon Championships at Queen's

Andy Murray expressed his delight at coming through a tricky match unscathed as he secured a straight-sets win over qualifier Yen-Hsun Lu at Queen’s Club.

The 28-year-old British No1 won 6-4 7-5 at the Aegon Championships and to set up a clash with Spain’s Fernando Verdasco in round two.

The Scot fell behind in both sets but eventually triumphed in one hour and 19 minutes.

“It was good. I always enjoy coming back here,” said Murray. “It was not an easy match. He’s a good player, obviously. He takes the ball on the bounce and the ball shoots through the court pretty flat. He likes a quicker court. It was a tricky match but it was OK.”

He continued: “I have said like this year I want to try to perform better in more events just because I feel like you’re not going to win every single tournament, but I think the more opportunities you have to play in finals and semi-finals against the best players, it’s beneficial when you get to a Major competition.”
