Andy Murray beats Milos Raonic to win record fifth Queen’s title

June 20, 2016

Murray looked destined for defeat when Raonic took the first set and then led 3-0 in the second, but the British number one pulled off another superb fightback to win 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 6-3.

It means Murray’s success at the Aegon Championships is now unparalleled, moving top of the list of champions and above four-time winners like Roy Emerson, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, and John McEnroe.

McEnroe was watching on courtside in his capacity as Raonic’s new coach but it was Murray’s mentor Ivan Lendl who got one over his old rival and maintained the perfect start to his second spell with the world number two.

Lendl and McEnroe met 33 times in their careers, once at Queen’s when Lendl won 6-2 6-4 in 1990, but Murray was keen to stress the only contest relevant here was inside the white lines.
