Andy Murray Will Play Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club
Andy Murray will be playing in the Aegon Championships in London for the rest of his career. BBC will continue to provide live coverage of the event until 2024. Murray won the tournament for the 5th time in 2016 when he managed to defeat Milos Raonic in the final and later on beat him again and claimed his second Wimbledon title. Murray enjoyed an incredible campaign during 2016, which saw him earn the first place, which ended up with him being knighted in the Queen’s Honours List. Murray told the BBC that he is very happy to play at Queen’s for the rest of his career. His initial ATP World Tour match win was at Queen’s back in 2005, so for it to become his most successful tournament is an incredible feeling. He added that by looking at the names that managed to win the tournament four times, he realised that they are some of the best tennis players. He concluded that winning it five times means quite a lot to him. BBC has been covering the pre-Wimbledon tournament for quite a while, since 1979. In 2013 they reported that 3.7m people watched the final between Raonic and Murray. The tournament organisers will also be expanding the capacity of the court during 2017, which will see them to accommodate approximately 9000 seats, which is a 30% increase from 2016. The director of Aegon Championships, Stephen Farrow stated that to know that Murray will play at the Queen’s Club until the end of his career and that BBC will continue to cover it is a massive boost in what an important and exciting year it will be for the Aegon Championships.
