Andy Murray defends his record in the face of John McEnroe claim

After attaining the No 1 status late previous year Murray struggled to perform in the new season, suffering a number of surprise defeats on tour.

By far the biggest and most exciting storyline of this year's season has been the resurgence of tennis legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, so I'm going to focus on those two for now.

Grigor Dimitrov, the 2014 Queen's champion, is the only player other than Murray to have won the tournament in the last four years and the Bulgarian takes on Ryan Harrison of the United States in the first round.

Federer, meanwhile, skipped the clay season altogether and then lost his first match on grass in Stuttgart earlier this week to 39-year-old Tommy Haas.

"I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen's next week". "I know some of the players have been doing really well until their mid-30s recently, but that might not be the case with me". The grass courts at Queens and Wimbledon allow him to win cheap points off his first serve and even when his second serve gets put under extreme pressure, Murray has the movement to neutralise a lot of the first returns of his opponent.

"I think it's going to take some matches and dealing with some frustrating and tough, important moments just to get that sharpness".

Trump attorney says president not under investigation
But Sekulow claimed the president wasn't referring to an actual investigation in the message, but instead a news report about one. Trump has repeatedly dismissed the investigations and reports that he is one of the targets of the probes as "a witch hunt ".

"If my body is good and I stay fit and healthy, I still enjoy the training, I enjoy the travelling, I love what I do, that's not the issue". Right now there's a objective towards me doing it.

"For me, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks".

Defending his Wimbledon title is likely to be incentive enough for Murray to find his best form when it matters most, having snapped out of a slump by reaching the semi-finals of the French Open just 11 days ago. Realistically, I want to make the most of the last few years of my career.

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.

Speaking at the draw ceremony, which was streamed live (and can still be viewed) on Facebook the Australian commented on his opening match against Donald Young: "I'm happy with that", he said. "I obviously would because they've won a lot more than me".

Murray does not play until Tuesday, when his opponent will be British No 4 Aljaz Bedene, one of five home players in the 32-man field.
