British number one Andy Murray will hold a real hope of winning his first grand slam in the upcoming Wimbledon championships after coming out on top against Jo-Wolfried Tsonga in the final of the Aegon Championship at Queen's club.
The Scot was a 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 victor against the Frenchman on Monday claiming his second Queen's Club title, with the highlight of the day being a trick-shot in-between his legs which dazzled the capacity crowd.
The win was especially impressive as Murray seemed to come into good form just in time for Wimbledon and showed no signs of the ankle injury he sustained during the French Open.
His victory also made him the first British man since Francis Gordon Lowe in 1914 to win a second Queen's title. It all sets him up nicely for Wimbledon, which begins on 20 June at the All England Club.
Afterwards, in his post-match interview, Murray was confident stating he could go on to win his first grand slam.
I'm going to Wimbledon with the feeling that I'm going to win the tournament, said Murray. I don't think you can go in with any other attitude. I feel like I'm playing good tennis. I'll need to improve the next week or so and work on some things going into Wimbledon, but I need to play my best tennis throughout the tournament.
I'll be switched on for the first match. I'm really looking forward to the next five or six days to get ready for it, because for me it's one of the most important tournaments of the year, if not the most.
On his trick between-the-legs shot, the Scot added.
You don't get a chance to do that very often, he said. It just came off. Sometimes it's just a reaction. I was up 40-0 in the game, probably wouldn't have gone for it if it was 30-30. But I felt comfortable on the court once I got ahead in the match.
It was nice letting something off, hitting that shot, because I had been behind for 90% of the match.
Frenchman Tsonga revealed that Murray's return game was the key to the Scot's win.
During the game he can read the serve, said Tsonga, Even if you hit the ball really hard he will put the ball in.
On his own performance, he added, I was disappointed that I lost today, not because I lost against Andy, but because I lost a final. It's difficult when you have this run in the tournament and just the last step you miss, but I feel good. I hope I will play well in the future.
