Murray : Tennis star in spotlight as Wimbledon looms

19 June 2017

Murray kicks off the week with a first-round clash against compatriot Aljaz Bedene on Tuesday, and faces a tough Aegon Championships field, that includes Stan Wawrinka.

World No. 1 Andy Murray has revealed he may only have another "couple of years" playing at the top of the sport.

Before the Wimbledon kicks off, Murray will have another challenge - which is at the Queen's Club (Aegon Championships) next week and Murray will be looking to an impact there.

Nadal said: "I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen's next week".

He is seeded to face France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter-finals and former US Open champion Marin Cilic in the semi-finals, with a potential final against second seed Wawrinka. Right now there's a goal towards me doing it. "I'll continue to play so long as my body is fine".

The fire at the 24-story building has led to community anger and protests over the British government's response. British officials have announced a nationwide minute of silence to honor the victims on Monday morning.

Trailing Djokovic by 8,035 points in the rankings, Murray made a sensational surge up the charts in the second half of the season, winning seven of nine ATP Tour events to finish 2016 at the top of the rankings.

Iconic British secret agent James Bond's ability to unite the British people is required now more than ever, tennis star Andy Murray said in a candid interview with The Times on Saturday.

"If you look at the titles and everything those guys have won overall, I mean, I can't compare myself to them". I feel like I'm doing things better than I did previous year.

Save for Barcelona, where the 30-year-old Scot reached the semi-finals, he has struggled on the clay courts of Europe until Roland Garros, where, aided by a favourable draw, he reached the last four.

Condoling the incident earlier, Londor Mayor Sadiq Khan said, "The bad news, I'm afraid, is lots of people died in the fire". Hundreds have been left homeless, putting more pressure on officials in a city plagued by a chronic housing shortage.

'It's not true of the a year ago but in terms of the career as a whole, then I would, if I could swap careers with those guys I obviously would because they've won a lot more than me'.

"It's helped me prepare for Wimbledon every year in my career", said Murray. It took me a long time to get there.

"I would hope to still be playing at the next Olympics", he added.

"I'll give it my best shot for sure". I've been better than them for the last 12 months. "But in terms of the career as a whole, if I could swap with those guys then I would because they've won a lot more than me".

He followed up his success in 2009 by completing the ideal Wimbledon preparation by fighting back to defeat hard-hitting Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 in the 2011 final, which was only the third Monday final in the tournament's history.
