Keep your eyes on Queen's

It's Fernando Verdasco up next for Andy Murray tomorrow. The Spaniard beat Roberto Bautista Agut 3-6 7-5 7-6 yesterday.

Meanwhile, we're wrapping up, although there's still action at Queen's this evening. Marin Cilic is taking on Adrian Mannarino.

You can watch and listen to that right here, by clicking the Live Coverage tab, but it's also on your red button.

'When I first came on tour I was a child'

Murray 6-4 7-5 Lu

More from Andy Murray: "There's more demands on your time away from the court, but you get to play in front of packed stadiums. In all sports it's a benefit to play at home. There's pressure, but it's great.

"When I first came on tour I was a child - in my behaviour as well as my physique. But I've tried to work hard and hopefully I can keep getting better."

'I've had good runs here'

Murray 6-4 7-5 Lu

And Murray tells BBC Sport: "It was nice. It's always a pleasure to come back here. I'm glad I managed to get the win. I felt like I moved pretty well. I felt I didn't start serving so well. But I felt I hit the ball well from the back of the court.

"I've had good runs here. It's an extremely strong field this year so I'll have to play great tennis."

Murray 6-4 7-5 Lu

Murray is mobbed by spectators of all ages to get their goodies signed. Murray, who appears to be a very nice chap it must be said, scribbles on everything.

He gives a wave to the crowd and now he's got Andrew Castle asking him some questions...

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's

"A quick journey through the labyrinthine tunnels and stairs of the Queen's Club and Rafael Nadal was ready to face the media after his defeat by Alexandr Dolgopolov.

"I was fighting in every point," said the Spaniard. "I was with the right concentration, with the right motivation, not giving up when I had tough moments.

"I'm not happy I lost a match that I had a chance to win, but that's it. That's tennis on grass."

Game, set and match

Murray 6-4 7-5 Lu

Andy Murray celebrates

And what a match point it is, clipping a lob into acres of space behind Lu.

Murray puffs out the cheeks, and so he should do. That wasn't clean cut. But hey, he's through and he's one from one on grass this summer. Onwards and upwards.

Match point

Murray 6-4 6-5 Lu*

Lu, needing to hold, goes long. He levels with a sharp volley at the net. Murray puts a simple backhand slice into the net.

Lu goes long again - twice. Match point.

Murray 6-4 6-5 Lu*

Murray almost has to dig a hole to get down to a low one, but he whips it over the net tremendously. It sets him on his way to a clean sweep. Now, can he find the break for the match? Timing is everything.

*Murray 6-4 5-5 Lu

We get the biggest ripple of noise today from the Queen's contingent, who know Murray can sew the match up now.

He wins the first point, loses the second and then shouts at himself. Standard fare from the Scot.

Now a bigger scream as he miscues a forehand. Lu goes long though and we hear "come on Andy!" from the crowd.

Now the umpire is getting in on the act - trying to nonchalantly catch the ball, but failing. Lu succeeds though and tidies up the game quickly.

Murray 6-4 5-4 Lu*

One thing looks for sure, Murray is not in the mood for dropping any more service games*. That's a bish, bash, bosh game from the Scot, four serves, four points.

*Murray will inevitably be broken in his next service game.

*Murray 6-4 4-4 Lu

I'm sure Lu just let out a "woo hoo" when the ball dropped Murray's side of the net just now. You don't hear enough "woo hoo-ing" these days.

He should be happy though, as he knocks a forehand right into the corner and Murray can only flop it into the net to relinquish the game.

Murray 6-4 4-3 Lu*

Andy Murray returns the ball

It's just a procession of service points at the moment. Murray sends an ace down the middle to win the game - it almost removes the head of a line judge.

Andrew Cotter

Commentator, BBC Sport

"It all seems a little bit better for Andy now. In other news, John Lloyd has picked out Michael Carrick in the crowd. Either it's Michael Carrick or a very good lookalike..."

*Murray 6-4 3-3 Lu

Talking of straightforward. Lu holds clean as a whistle. A few more shouts of "come on Murray". He's trying.

Murray 6-4 3-2 Lu*

Lu is getting louder and louder on his shots the further we go. The Taiwanese makes a two-syllable noise akin to an old steam train as he stretches for points.

It's not helping. Murray has his most straightforward game for a while, dropping just the one point.

Murray breaks back in second set

*Murray 6-4 2-2 Lu

Murray smells a break. He wrong foots Lu with a forehand to the backhand side to go to 30-30 and then the Taiwanese has an untimely double fault.

Lu gets fortunate though. Serve, volley, top of the net, point. He clips the tape again, but this time it drops his side. Advantage Murray.

And game to Murray, with a searching backhand that Lu can't get back.

#bbctennis Just brilliant to see Andy at Queens again! His passion is unmatched that's why he's so emotional, as am i on the court!

Jose serves up a new striker

Jose Mourinho
"Roman... it's Jose here..."

The BBC's sports editor Dan Roan is reporting that Chelsea are on the verge of agreeing a one-season loan deal for Radamel Falcao from Monaco.

Now that's why Jose had the phone in his hand earlier...

Murray 6-4 2-1 Lu*

Murray needed a quick game. He almost got it, three serves put him 40-0 up. But once again he becomes loose and Lu is back at deuce. No bother though, as Lu goes long and wide and Murray holds.

Andy Murray shouts

"Even though he's up a set, Andy's not mentally in tune at the moment. I don't know what's going on."

*Murray 6-4 1-1 Lu

You always worry about Murray when he starts shouting at himself, other people and inanimate objects.

We're getting a bit of that now as he shrieks to his box. We also hear the first "come on Andy" from the crowd. That man will no doubt have his glass of Cava removed for being unruly.

Better from Murray though, as he scampers everywhere to finally hit a casual slice backhand.

Lu is unhindered though, and hits a second serve right down the middle for the game.

Lu breaks in second set

Murray 6-4 0-1 Lu*

Lu Yen-Hsun hits a shot

I was about to say Lu looks a little lethargic now, shoulders a bit more slumped. But then Murray goes from 40-0 to deuce, through a combination of unforced areas and some firecracker Lu forehands.

It's all bit quiet at Queen's, but then again it usually it is.

Now there's noise as Murray hisses at himself for hitting into the net. Lu also looks perplexed after putting a break point long.

Murray finds the net again and he is furious. He'll be even angrier, as Lu breaks after being three points down.

Murray wins first set

Murray 6-4 Lu

Andy Murray celebrates

Murray has a chance to finish this set off. Lu hits a couple short and then one clips the net, so Murray despatches it. But the Scot fails with a return for 30-30.

Lots of heavy exhaling on the next point - and you can't blame them as it goes on a bit. Murray wins it, set point... Long from Lu.

So after going a break down, and without really being explosive, Murray has casually turned it around to take the set.

Murray 5-4 Lu*

Andy Murray

Lu forces Murray to get defensive, and the Taiwanese is good enough to capitalise. Murray reacts by having a stroll to the net and landing an acrobatic volleyed winner.

"Make one of them," Murray says to himself after fluffing a few first serves.

He responds by sending down an ace for the game.

John Lloyd

"Amelie Mauresmo will be at Wimbledon this year, alongside Andy's other coaches. She's expecting a child in August but has had the all-clear from her doctor to travel."

*Murray 4-4 Lu

We're getting a few close-ups of Andy Murray's wedding ring. It's not on his finger, it's on his shoelace. As long as you have it on you at all times, you're not breaking the rules, right?

Meanwhile, Murray is moving around nicely, but can't get one out of his feet and Lu goes 40-15 up. The pair then get embroiled in a nice rally, which Murray makes the most of, only for Lu to nick the game with his serve.

Murray 4-3 Lu*

Murray thinks he's got it easier this time, racing to 40-15. But he's caught off guard by a tasty Lu cross-court backhand. Lu steps off the baseline and hits straight into the net though, to give Murray the game.

Murray breaks straight back

*Murray 3-3 Lu

Andy Murray plays a shot

So much variety from Lu. He's back volleying again and to good effect for the first point.

Murray wins a pummelling baseline battle and then strikes a passing backhand for two break points.

Now one break point - Lu snaffles an overhead volley. But he puts a cross-court effort wide and Murray is back on level terms.

John Lloyd

1977 Australian Open runner-up on BBC Two

"Lu drops off the Tour every now and again to get his form and confidence back in the Challenger events. That's a good way of doing it."

Lu breaks

Murray 2-3 Lu*

Murray quickly finds himself 0-30 down, and it could be worse, but Lu squanders an appealing looking forehand opportunity.

Hmmm. A double fault from the Scot and two break points to save. The first is deal with with a text book driving forehand.

But Lu musters a terrific shot down the line to steal an early break.

Murray is already having a little chat with himself in the chair.

Broady knocked out too

Bad news for a Brit

Another Brit bites the dust at the Aegeon Classic in Birmingham. After Heather Watson's demise earlier, Naomi Broady was hammered 6-4 6-2 against top seed Simona Halep.

*Murray 2-2 Lu

Lu has gone for a more salmon affair in terms of his get up. It's fetching.

So is that opening point, which Lu secures with a tidy backhand. In fact, it's a really comfortable game for the Taiwanese, who looks happy to come to the net. And he seals the game with an inch-perfect slice which is just inside the line.

Murray 2-1 Lu*

Andy Murray in action

Murray is definitely in a Wimbledon kind of mood, decked in all white. Including a white cap.

Jose Mourinho may have nipped out to do some transfer deals - he's waiting for the change of ends to return to his seat, mobile phone dangling in his right hand.

Murray meanwhile does just enough to notch up his second game, no fireworks though.

*Murray 1-1 Lu

Lu showing us he's not here to make up the numbers. A forehand from deep behind the baseline is too good for Murray.

Now he's into the net and dictating the pace, finishing with a controlled volley. A couple of long ones have given Murray a sniff, but a decent serve sees the Taiwanese through.

Who is Yen-Hsun Lu?

Yen-Hsun Lu, the Taiwanese 31-year-old, is ranked 65th in the world, and is a qualifier here at Queen's, but he's no pushover.

Supposedly more comfortable on the hard surfaces, he reached the quarter-finals on the grass of Wimbledon in 2010 and peaked at 33rd in the world that year.

Possibly the most important thing to know about the right-hander is he gave himself the nickname Rendy as a kid, to help out his English teacher.

Also, with a surname just two characters long, he is the friend of live text commentators everywhere.

Murray is on

Murray 1-0 Lu*

We've barely had time to recover from galloping Dolgopolov before Andy Murray's under way.

Murray serves first, and it's not straightforward. He fails to pick one off his toes on the baseline to make it nervy at 40-30, but Lu hits a wayward return.
