Andy Murray Promises to Donate Queen's Prize Money to Grenfell Tower Victims

Posted June 21, 2017

World number one Murray, a five-time champion at Queen's and the reigning Wimbledon title-holder, was left stunned by the Australian - a late replacement for the injured Aljaz Bedene - winning his first match against a top-10 opponent.

Andy Murray suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats of his career, as the world number one slumped to a stunning Queen's Club first-round exit against Australia's Jordan Thompson on Tuesday.

Rising Thompson, who lost in the final round of Queen's qualifies, will be meeting next big-serving Sam Querrey. This tournament has given me great preparation in the past, and when I have won here Wimbledon has tended to go pretty well, too, ' said Murray.

"There are no guarantees that I won't do well at Wimbledon, but it certainly would have helped to have had more matches".

Murray also played in a fund-raising match at the end of that year's tournament with his coach, Ivan Lendl, Tim Henman and Tomas Berdych.

The two-time Wimbledon champion is now gearing up to defend his title at Queen's Club, with his opening match taking place today against Aljaž Bedene.

"I do think that a lot can change in a short period of time".

Murray put in a sloppy and error-prone display against the 90th-ranked Thompson, joining Wawrinka and Milos Raonic in getting eliminated on a day of shocks at the Wimbledon warmup event.

Thompson, 23, made it through as a lucky loser, but there was nothing fortunate about his win over five-times Queen's victor Murray, who was blighted by a severe lack of consistency at the London warm-up event. "I just wanted to enjoy myself and stay calm". He and Murray have never previously met. I trained a lot Monday to Thursday and then I was playing practice sets.

Thompson, who has lost all four of his previous grass-court matches, struck 12 aces and saved all three break points he faced to hand Murray his first opening-round loss at Queen's Club since 2006.

He admitted: "I won't win Wimbledon if I play like that - but I can play better than that".

2014 runner-up Lopez hit 18 ace shots, won 83 percent of his first serve points and saved Wawrinka's two break chances in an hour and a half of action.
