Andy Murray targets record fifth title at Queen’s 2016

Andy Murray is targeting a record fifth Aegon Championships title at The Queen's Club in 2016

Andy Murray is targeting a record fifth Aegon Championships title after confirming that he will return to The Queen’s Club for the 2016 tournament.

Murray joined MJG Ritchie, Anthony Wilding, Roy Emerson, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick as the only seven four-time champions when he defeated Kevin Anderson in last year’s final, and he now wants to stand alone as the only five-time winner.

“If I could win it a fifth time it would be amazing,” said Murray, who has won the event in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015.

“The names that have won it four times – they are all great tennis players. I’ve played some of my best tennis at The Queen’s Club over the years.

“Maybe it’s because I enjoy the tournament – it’s a great event. One of the nice things is that it’s at a club, which you don’t get that much on the tour.

“I’ve spent a lot of time there, played it 10 or 11 years in a row, and they get really great crowds. The courts are fantastic – I’ve got to know a few of the groundsmen quite well, and they put a lot of hard work and effort in to making the courts perfect.”

The Aegon Championships take place at Queen’s Club from 13-19 June 2016.
