Murray up

Andy Murray won Queens this afternoon, beating the American James Blake 7-5, 6-4 for his first grass court title.

The 22-year-old Scot is the first domestic player to win Queens since Henry Austin took the title back in 1938, something he found tricky to deal with.

'They were telling me yesterday that no-one (British) had won here for 70-odd years so that got the nerves going, especially when I was serving for the match,' he said after his win. 'Some weeks it happens and this week I was playing well. When I had my chances I managed to take them but I was quite nervous today.'

However, he was quick to play down suggestions that Wimbledon is there for the taking. 'I'm a long way from winning Wimbledon,' Murray said.

'I feel confident but I try not to get too far ahead of myself before I've played my first match there. If I play my best like I have this week I've got a chance, but two of the greatest players of all-time are going to be there and it will be tough to get past them.'
