Andy Murray has set his sights on a record fifth title in this summer’s Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club.

The world number two confirmed on Tuesday that he will defend the trophy he won for a fourth time last summer with victory over Kevin Anderson.

That made Murray the eighth four-time champion, joining the likes of John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick, but no one has yet managed a fifth.

Murray, the champion in 2009, 2011, 2013 as well as 2015, said: “If I could win it a fifth time it would be amazing. The names that have won it four times – they are all great tennis players. I’ve played some of my best tennis at the Queen’s Club over the years.”

The 28-year-old made his debut at Queen’s in 2005 and used the club’s clay courts to prepare for November’s Davis Cup final.
