Former Wimbledon champ Pat Cash believes Andy Murray has all the right skills to secure the title at the All England Club.

Murray will play his final warm-up match at the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at The Hurlingham Club as he continues his preparation for the grass-court competition next week.

The Scot has seemingly recovered from a back injury that forced him to pull out of the French Open, but he made his return at the Aegon Championship last week.

The 26-year-old admitted that it was only a precaution to miss the event at Roland Garros to ensure he would be fully fit and raring to go for the tournament on home soil.

Cash insists that he is confident US Open winner Murray is more than capable of picking up a win at SW19, which he demonstrated at last summer’s Olympics when he beat Roger Federer to the gold medal having lost the Wimbledon final to the Swiss star.

Cash said: “Andy Murray has just about got everything in his game so far, he might just get that extra bit of luck perhaps, just being able to grab the big points.

“That (Wimbledon) final with Federer last year was very close, and Andy is getting closer to winning Wimbledon all the time. He is a terrific player, but I do think you need that bit of luck.

“He has had some injury problems, but so far at Wimbledon he has just been unlucky. However, what is to say that can’t change? Andy is very comfortable on Centre Court, when he goes out there he plays better and better.”
