Andy Murray feels he has been ‘moving fairly well’ since his return to the court this week, following a spell out through injury.

The British number one was forced to sit out the French Open because of a lower back problem, which he suffered during the Rome Masters in May.

But despite issues with the weather, with a combination of rain breaks and blustery winds hampering the players, Murray has made decent progress at Queen’s Club.

The 26-year-old defeated Nicolas Mahut in a match that spanned over two days due to the conditions, before then seeing off Marinko Matosevic in round three.

Speaking after his second success, the Scot revealed: “I have been moving fairly well in the first couple of matches and hopefully that will get better.

“Hopefully the wind calms down a bit and we will see more good tennis.”

Murray, top seed for the Aegon Championships, is now due to face Germany’s Benjamin Becker who defeated seventh seed Alexandr Dolgopolov in straight sets to reach the last eight.

The duo have never faced each other on the ATP Tour but Murray will be wary of Becker, despite his ranking of 105 in the world.

The German’s only tour title came on grass when winning the Ordina Open in the Netherlands in the summer of 2009.
