Andy Murray will begin his assault on an elusive Wimbledon title by competing in the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club.

The British number one has become the latest player to confirm his appearance at the London event, joining an elite list which includes the Tour's top two Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
The 2009 US Open winner Juan Martin del Potro, plus four-time Queens champion Andy Roddick are also among the high-class field that will compete in June 6-12 tournament.
World number four Murray will be aiming to regain the title he won in 2009, where he became the first Briton since Henry 'Bunny' Austin in 1938 and the 23-year-old said: ""Winning my first grass court title here in 2009 was an amazing feeling.
""It means a lot to me to have my name on the trophy next to great champions such as John McEnroe, Pete Sampras and Rafael Nadal who have won it in the past.
""The Queen's Club has some of the best grass courts in the world, there are packed crowds every year and there is always a great atmosphere.
""Usually players that have done well at Queen's have gone on to do well at Wimbledon. I can't wait to get playing.""
