Injury scare for Andy Murray ahead of Wimbledon title defence

Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares teamed up to win the Aegon
Championships doubles title at Queen's Club yesterday, beating French pair Julien Benneteau and Edourd Roger-Vasselin in the final.

Murray becomes the first British doubles victor at Queen's since Jeremy Bates in 1990.

His decision to withdraw is described merely as a precaution in the run-up to Wimbledon, an event he won in both 2013 and 2016.

It is not yet known whether the 30-year-old, who has three Grand Slam titles to his name, will be able to feature in his other scheduled match this Friday. "I do find it stressful but I think it helps me concentrate better".

"Andy didn't play so well but we've been a bit spoilt with him over the years", Jamie said with a smile.

Judy Murray, Great Britain's Fed Cup captain, says her sons - who have paired together on tour and in the Davis Cup before - will continue on their own path for now, but she does foresee a time when they play together at SW19.

"I'm pretty sure before they get to the end of their careers they're going to have a crack at Wimbledon doubles together".

"What with him winning the singles five times it was nice that maybe I could take over for one year".
