Queen’s Club tennis returns on Monday as Andy Murray begins his bid to win an unprecedented sixth title at the Aegon Championships. 

Murray is not due on court until Tuesday, when he will face fellow Brit Aljaz Bedene, but Kyle Edmund will no doubt have the crowd on-side for his match against Canada’s Denis Shapovalov. 

Edmund is due out fourth at Queen’s, after Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios take to the main court.

The Tournament concludes on Sunday, June 25 — three weeks before the Wimbledon final — and Murray believes victory in Kensington will set him up nicely for the third Grand Slam of 2017.

 Edmund 6-7, 6-4, 4-6 Shapovalov Just a second double fault from Edmund but it couldn’t come at a worse time as it sends him 0-30 down. And then comes a third. Triple match point for Shapovalov. Edmund nets his fifth serve in a row but responds with a boomer of a second and puts away a forehand winner soon after. Then he saves another as Shapovalov slips. But he can’t save a third as he miscues a forehand!

Edmund 6-7, 6-4, 4-5 Shapovalov It’s not easy for either player, Edmund battles his way to 40-30 on the Shapovalov serve but just when he’s settled into a rally that could force deuce he goes long with a regulation backhand. The Canadian is now one break away from the win… though that’s easier said than done.

Edmund 6-7, 6-4, 3-4 Shapovalov Shapovalov has been serving first and that gives him the advantage but this has been too close to call so far. 30 service games so far… one break.

Edmund 6-7, 6-4 Shapovalov That one bad game to start the second set has come Shapovalov dearly. The set continues on serve and though a fine shot from the Canadian gave him hope in the 10th game there was little chance for him as Edmund closed out the set. We’re into a decisive third set!
