Murray to warm up for Wimbledon at Queen's

LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray will warm up for the defense of his Wimbledon title by attempting to win the Queen's Club tournament for a fourth time.

Murray beat Marin Cilic to win Queen's in 2013, and also captured the title in west London in 2009 and '11. Murray says "to win the title for the third time last year and then to go on to win Wimbledon was really special, and it highlights the importance of Queen's."

Murray is currently tied with Jimmy Connors on three titles and will bid to join John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick in winning Queen's four times. Queen's runs from June 9-15.
