Andy Murray to warm up for Wimbledon at Hurlingham event

Andy Murray to warm up for Wimbledon at Hurlingham event”

Meanwhile at Queen's, Marin Cilic advanced to the semi-finals with a 6-4 7-5 victory over American Donald Young where he will face Luxembourg's Gilles Muller, who owns a ideal mark of 7-0 on grass-courts this season, who beat the 2010 champion Sam Querrey of the United States, 6-4 7-6 (5) in 81 minutes.

In order to avoid burn-out, Federer opted to sit out the entire clay-court season to stay fresh for Wimbledon and it appears to be paying dividends after he secured his place in the quarter-finals of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany, on Thursday courtesy of a 7-6 6-4 win over home favourite Mischa Zverev. With both having already achieved most of their goals in the sport, there would be tremendous interest and attention given to the doubles if they made a decision to target glory in partnership. He's not playing much, but when he's playing, he's winning. "I think the second half of the season is going to be really, really interesting". So it's probably a little bit more open. It's two weeks of tennis.

"It's great to see 35-year-olds competing against everybody younger and it's one of the great stories of the year".

"(Muller) is going to be the first guy that I'm going to meet, apart from (John) Isner, serving and volleying, and obviously with his lefty serve he's really dominant on his service games on grass. I lost the finals here and won Eastbourne the week after a few years ago.

"Roger is refusing to grow old, and if he believes a 19th Grand Slam is possible, then why not a 20th as well?" the German three-time Wimbledon champion added.

'But, yeah, there is no better preparation. It was a really special moment for me too.
