As well as the Murray-Bedene first round match, there is plenty of British interest throughout the 32-man draw.

Murray became the first British champion at Queen's Club since Bunny Austin in 1938 as he claimed a historic first grass-court tournament after beating James Blake 7-5 6-4 in the 2009 final. Realistically, I want to make the most of the last few years of my career. "I don't think that would be how I would judge when or if I'm going to stop, based on just trying to make it to the next Olympics".

"They've both played great, great tennis", he said.

"Within tennis, a lot of people just go, 'oh that guy was a better player because he won more grand slams than that one, or that woman was better because she won more grand slams". Grabine Muguruza, last year's French Open champion, is sixth seed. I want to keep playing.

"If I'm going to be away from my family, I'm not going to do that and not do my best".

"He did exceptionally well to win five matches in Paris and hopefully this can be a kick-start, a turning point, to his year, particularly heading into the grass season, at home at Queens and Wimbledon - two events he has won before".

Despite the withdrawal of world no 2 and French Open champions Rafael Nadal, a strong line-up has assembled in London for the event with four of the world's top 10 in action including Stan Wawrinka, Raonic and 2012 champion Cilic.

The top-ranked will begin his Aegon Championship campaign against fellow countryman Aljaz Bedene.

Murray, then, should be consolidating his position at the top for the rankings for the rest of this year and beyond.

"This surface is a little bit more natural for me, which helps, but I have had to practice a lot this week". The picture will become clearer at the end of this week but the pressure is undoubtedly on Murray to fight hard for his place at the top and he is well aware a sixth victory at Queen's would be the ideal preparation for defending his Wimbledon title.

"Andy has already won three Slams and we can't forget his double Olympic gold, so if he was to retire tomorrow then he's already achieved a fantastic amount in his career".

Although Roger Federer, who turns 36 in August, took his majors tally to 18 with victory at the Australian Open, the 30-year-old Briton does not expect to still be competing at such a level when he reaches that age. "I'll continue to play so long as my body is fine".

Murray beat Bedene in the same tournament in 2016 on his way to a record-extending fifth title.

"It's always tough to stay at the top of any sport", Murray said. "I..." That being said, Nadal hasn't looked this good in a long time, so I think it would be foolish to count him out.
