After winning back-to-back Challenger events in Surbiton and Nottingham, Andy Murray will look to translate his confident form onto the main tour when he takes on Alex De Minaurin his Queen’s Club opener.
De Minaur has been the more clinical player on return but Murray has been the more consistent player on serve this season.
Playing styles and prediction
It was a disappointing clay court season for De Minaur but the Australian will be relieved that his favourite time of the year has arrived in the form of the grass court season. De Minaur hasn’t won back-to-back matches since his run to the Acapulco title in March and the world number 18 will look to improve that on grass which is a surface he has had previous success in having won the Eastbourne title previously.
Murray will look to be consistent on serve and use the block return to set up effective rallies on return with the Brit looking to keep up his grass court efficiency. Meanwhile De Minaur will look to be aggressive and come into the net as much as possible in order to shorten the amount of time Murray has to make decisions. This will be a stern test for Murray and one he must win if he wants to be seeded for Wimbledon.
