Andy Murray is targeting glory at Wimbledon following his record-breaking fifth success at Queen’s Club on Sunday.

The world number two defeated Milos Raonic 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-3 to successfully defend his title ahead of the start of the third major of the year at SW19 on June 27.

Murray was presented with a bottle of champagne following his success, and he revealed that he intends to use the bottle to toast a victory at Wimbledon in a few of weeks time.

He told reporters: “I’ll take it home, I guess, and hopefully maybe have something to celebrate in a few weeks. Yeah, keep it for after Wimbledon.”

The 29-year-old has already reached the final at both the Australian and French Opens during 2016, losing to Novak Djokovic on both occasions, while he was also victorious at last month’s Italian Open.

In total Murray has reached five ATP finals since the turn of the year and he believes he is currently playing some of the most consistent tennis of his career.

He added: “I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have done that before. It’s a sign things are going the right direction the last few months.
I’m giving myself chances every week right now and winning a lot of matches.”

The British number one is available at 3.80 to claim overall glory at Wimbledon this year, while Djokovic, who is chasing his third straight success at the All England Club, is on offer at 1.70.
