Next stop for Murray, Wimbledon

Well, as far as Wimbledon preparation goes, that was about a 10 on the decent scale for Murray.

There will be plenty of hype around the Brit now, but Federer has shown he is in form today by winning an eighth Halle title. And with Novak Djokovic having a relatively sedate grass-court warm-up, we won't know what form he is in until he graces SW19.

Make sure you join us for comprehensive coverage of Wimbledon. The BBC Sport website is the only place where you can read, watch and hear the best of the action.

Until then, keep your strings tight, and your backhands silky.

Robson gets wildcard

A bit of news from the British women's side of things for you.

Laura Robson, who made her return at Eastbourne this week after a 17-month lay-off, has been given a wildcard for Wimbledon. The 21-year-old missed out on the first batch of wildcards earlier in the week.

In the first-round at Eastbourne, Briton Naomi Broady is a break up at 4-3 against American Sloane Stephens.

Shohidur Rahman: The only hurdle for Murray at the moment is Djokovic. He's the only one who will stop Murray from winning Wimbledon.

Ryan Barron: Murray played some amazing shots in that match. Geared up nicely for Wimbledon!

"Andy Murray said before he was playing as well as he did in 2013 but everyone's game moves on and he still thinks he's improving."

'Better than 2013'

Murray wins Queen's title

In 2013, Andy Murray completed a Queen's and Wimbledon double. So this is a strong statement from Andy Murray.

"I'm playing better than I did in 2013 but it's extremely difficult to win these events. People are improving all the time.

"You want to go into Wimbledon with grass matches under your belt. It's been a long few months and I need to take a day or two off and prepare as best as I can."

Wimbledon starts in eight days.

Murray, Querrey, Murray, Cilic, Murray, Dimitrov, Murray. Not bad, sir. Not bad at all.

Murray wins Queen's title

Andy Murray now with a magnum of champagne in his hands. He has to put it down to lift the massive Queen's Club trophy. It's almost as big as Big Kev.

"Both matches today were good performances. I played better as the week went on and hopefully I can continue that into Wimbledon. I tried to play each point and come up with some great shots. I had to play that way if I wanted to win today."

Murray 6-3 6-4 Anderson

Kevin Anderson has been handed his trophy. He looks reasonably happy.

Kevin Anderson: "Andy is a terrific player with great success, It's tough playing him here. I can take a lot of positives from this week. It's fantastic playing here."

John Lloyd

Former British number one on BBC Two

"That was a fabulous performance from Andy Murray. He knows everything in his game is firing on all cylinders for Wimbledon. Kevin Anderson has been brilliant in this tournament but Murray just brushed him off."

Murray lets out a cry of delight and beams with joy. He jogs over to his box and touches the hand of his wife Kim - a sort of mid-height high-five. No cuddle for Kim.

Game, set and match

Murray 6-3 6-4 Anderson

Andy Murray is a four-time Queen's Club champion.

Murray pops his serve way out wide to the Anderson forehand, and the South African can barely get a racquet to it, let alone return it.

Match point

Murray 6-3 5-4 Anderson*

Not a glorious start to the game. Murray slaps a forehand long. But Anderson's backhand down the line only finds the net. Serve and then a swinging backhand into the open court nudges Murray in front. Anderson return into the net... match point.

Few problems for Big Kev there. But he needs a break now, or it's over.

Dan Clifford: This is sensational from Murray. Wimbledon can't come soon enough!

Dawn Williams: Murray is playing some outrageous tennis. Absolutely wonderful stuff.

Murray 6-3 5-3 Anderson*

The answer to my previous question is looking like 'no'. A rare misjudgement from Murray at the baseline sees him get a forehand wrong to give Anderson a point.

But talk about feeling deflated. Anderson clips a perfectly decent forehand down the line, only to see it come back over his head and land perfectly at the back of the court. Murray needs one more game for the title.

"Respect for Kevin Anderson. He's having these outrageous shots coming at him but he's not showing any negative thoughts and is trying to get back into this match. It must be a nightmare facing these type of points."

*Murray 6-3 4-3 Anderson

Anderson goes back to what he knows best. The 17th ranked South African has a simple hold. But can he find a way through the Murray serve?

Murray 6-3 4-2 Anderson*

Murray is cool as a cucumber. You can see on the replays he sometimes has a little spin of the racquet in his hand between shots.

Commentator's curse coming up, but Murray doesn't look like dropping serve. Accurate, pacey and punchy, Anderson is getting a taste of his own medicine.

My word Murray. My word, sir. this is a beauty of a point. Anderson looked like he had won this point three or four times and suddenly, Murray releases a cross-court forehand on the chase that is good enough to eat.

Murray breaks

*Murray 6-3 3-2 Anderson

We get the rally of the match so far, and most of it's played in the mid-court. Delicate nudges at the ball, but Andy wins it playing into space.

He follows it up with an instinctive return down the line, sending back a 124mph serve with a bit of extra sauce.

Murray attacks a second serve early and a couple of shots later Anderson lifts a backhand on the rise wide.

And Murry's just getting silly now. Drop shot, Anderson makes it. Lob, Anderson makes it. Drop shot, too much for the South African. Murray breaks.

Jake Chalmers: The most confident and an Andy who knows what he has to do that I've seen in a while, it's great! So excited for Wimbledon 2015.

Beth Mc: I know aces are technically awesome but they don't make for interesting tennis one after another.

Murray 6-3 2-2 Anderson*

Anderson takes a rare lead against the serve, but Murray scuppers that with an ace down the middle that hits the padding at the back with a satisfying thud.

Anderson's eyes light up on a serve that pitches up, he winds up, optimistic, and slices his backhand wide. Murray makes a good challenge to go 40-15 and hen a backhand rally comes to an end when Anderson floats into the net.

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Queen's

"Murray has been hitting the ball well for several months now, his success on Europe's clay courts honing the groundstrokes and the switch to grass apparently not proving too tricky. Anderson is predictably strong on first serve but

"Murray has pounced on any second serves, grabbing the fleeting chances that can come and go on grass."

*Murray 6-3 1-2 Anderson

"Get down! get down!" shouts Andy Murray. Who either is in the mood for dancing, or is imploring himself to get lower to the ground on those baseline shots.

More big serves from Big Kev and a love hold.

Murray 6-3 1-1 Anderson*

We're not getting the rallies and intricate tennis we saw earlier in the Troicki match. Aside from Murray's break in the first set, each man's serve has looked pretty safe. Anderson particularly looks unlikely to make an indent on the Murray serve.

*Murray 6-3 0-1 Anderson

Anderson has faced adversity at Queen's already this week - he survived being match points down against Lleyton Hewitt in the first round. Can he find a way to throw Murray off his stride?

Big Kev goes 30-0 up, but Murray is all over a second serve and then finishes off with a backhand to put the pressure on.

Anderson holds though with, you guessed it, an ace.

Murray wins first set

Murray 6-3 Anderson

Murray puts in a couple of good serves himself. But the highlight is a slice backhand that drops on the line and almost bananas back on itself there's so much spin. It's the shot that wins the set for the Brit.

*Murray 5-3 Anderson

Speaking of which, there are four big serves and an easy hold for Anderson.

This has come from an anonymous texter, but I liked the story

I was once on a tennis holiday in Spain. Kevin Anderson was there on a training camp at the same time so I cheekily asked if I could face a couple of serves. Being a very nice guy he said "yes" and promptly sent down a couple of second service bombs with such incredible spin they bounced right over my head. Never even got a racket on them.

Murray 5-2 Anderson*

There are rallies threatening to break out at times, but they generally end with Anderson undoing himself at the baseline. The final point is a sweet serve and forehand combo from Murray for a love game.

John Lloyd

Former British number one on BBC Two

"Murray looks like he's got plenty of time, he's reading the ball, seeing it early and playing it so well. It looks like the only way he'll get into any trouble is if he loses concentration."

*Murray 4-2 Anderson

Anderson needed that game. The trusty serve sees him through and that's 100 aces for the tournament. Amazing.

Andrew Castle

BBC tennis commentator

"It's amazing how Murray has gained such control of this match so quickly. He's able to hit every shot and he's looked the winner of this tournament for quite some time. He's the man."

Murray 4-1 Anderson*

Big Kev won't be used to this. He can play the groundstrokes, and is obviously decent at getting around, but he definitely won't match Murray on those fronts.

Murray is confident. He disguises a backhand drop shot as a backhand drive. Anderson has no idea where it's going.

And Murray holds with a charging cross-court forehand dished up with a load of lovely top spin.

Andrew Castle

"A 141mph serve would knock the racquet out of most people's hands but Murray got it back and made Anderson play. Anderson will be amazed he got it back."

Murray breaks

*Murray 3-1 Anderson

Andy Murray gets a sniff from a great return, putting it on Anderson's toes. It allows Murray to whip a forehand winner to the corner. Murray is simply making Anderson play the shots, and it works again to go 15-30.

And what about that backhand? Murray winds up and releases to Anderson's left and it's not coming back.

Anderson, angry, slams a 141mph serve. But Murray returns and Anderson, rattled, pops the volley into the net.

Tom, Whitstable: Looking for Omens anyone? In 2013 Murray had won 2 titles by this stage, including a Masters. Then he won Queens and Wimbledon. In 2015, Murray has so far won 2 titles including a Masters, so if he wins today, history repeating itself remains on track

Neil: There is that aura around Murray again like at the Olympics. He looks so calm and confident. Can't see him being beaten

Murray pulls ahead to 30-0 but Anderson gets his big frame down to an attempted pass down the line to go 30-30 - Murray slips in .his attempt to reach it.

A 96mph serve from Murray does the business (Anderson serves above 110mph by the way). And Anderson spoons from the baseline to end what threatened to be a rally.

Murray gets back the first Anderson serve, but can't get to the subsequent volley.

Murray sitting really deep on Big Kev's serve but then stepping in at the last second, changing Anderson's perspective between the toss up and contact.

Murray has returned all three serves so far, but just one point to show for it. And we have Anderson's first ace. And then another. Game held.

Murray 1-0 Anderson* (* denotes next to serve)

Breaking news. Andy Murray has been chased by an insect.

The Scot does very well not to swing at it with his racquet. Instead, he stays calm and nudges it away. Although he's still a little apprehensive about it returning.

Murray reminds Anderson that he's not the only one with a decent serve. The South African fails to return four of them and it's a comfortable start for Murray.
