Andy Murray insists that he is looking forward to coming up against Gilles Muller in the quarter-finals of the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club.

The Scot is set to take on the 32-year-old after beating Spain’s Fernando Verdasco in straight sets on Thursday.

And the 28-year-old is looking forward to taking on Muller, who is coached by Murray’s friend Jamie Delgado.

“I have known him a long time,” said Murray. “We are not unbelievably close, but obviously I’ve spent quite a lot of time with Jamie and I watch a lot of Gilles’ matches through that. Obviously I want him to do well.

“He’s a very nice guy, quiet guy but good fun. I have spent more time with him the last year than I have previously. But I have known him for a number of years now.”

Murray continued: “I think Jamie is very knowledgeable about the game. He loves tennis. He’s obviously been on the tour himself for a long time. He’s done a very good job with Gilles.

“Gilles was coming back from an injury when they started together, but I’m pretty sure he got him up to his career high ranking or helped get him there.

“He’s done a very good job there and he’s a good friend of mine.”
