Murray secures Queen's record

Scot beats Raonic to become tournament's most successful player

Andy Murray overcame Milos Raonic to secure a record fifth Queen's Club Championships title.

Murray was one of eight men to have triumphed at Queen's on four occasions but the Scot's win in three sets on Sunday elevates him to a spot alone as the famous tournament's most successful competitor.

Murray had to come from a set down against the impressive Raonic, winning 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 in the final of the precursor to the upcoming Wimbledon Championships.

The world number two had been alongside Major Ritchie, Anthony Wilding, Roy Emerson, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick as a four-time winner of the competition.

McEnroe was present to witness Murray's record-breaking triumph.

"This tournament has loads of history with unbelievable crowds and always a strong field," the 29-year-old told BBC One following his victory.

"It's a pleasure to play in front of someone like John McEnroe, and any time you can do something a bit better than someone like him, then that's amazing.

"To win here for a fifth time means a lot for me."

Raonic paid tribute to new dad Murray, saying: "Congratulations to Andy for winning for a fifth time but I'm sure it's not nearly as special as having your first Fathers' Day as well.

"It's my first grass match on a Sunday, and hopefully we can have a rematch in a couple of Sundays (at Wimbledon).

"I've made good progress and improved every day here. Hopefully I can be at my best in a fortnight."
