Andy Murray takes on Paul-Henri Mathieu in the second round of the 2014 Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club centre court on Wednesday.

Where to Watch Live

The game is scheduled to begin at 3pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Two and ESPN. Sports 3 and Sky Sports 3 HD. Real-time internet updates and the live streaming link are available on ATP's official website.


Being one of the top seeds in the tournament and the defending champion, Murray enters the tournament directly into the second round. The 27-year-old trumped Marin Cilic in last year's final, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3, to lift the title for the third time in his career at London.

The world no 5 bowed out in the semi-finals of the 2014 Roland Garros against eventual champion Rafael Nadal last week. The British no 1 will be keen to mark another memorable spell on home soil given that he went on to win his first Wimbledon title last year after emerging as the champion at Queen's club.

Having recently appointed a new coach in Amelie Mauresmo, he will be looking to mount a double defence of both his titles in the coming weeks and would want to go into the Grand Slam event high on confidence.

Meanwhile, his round two opponent, Mathieu, overcame 24-year-old Slovenian Aljaz Bedene in the first round, 7-6 (2), 6-4, in straight sets on Monday, needing 84 minutes. The 32-year-old Frenchman will be keen to progress as far as possible in this competition and what could be a better way than denying Murray his fourth title at the English capital.

The winner of this clash will face the winner between Radek Stepanek and Bernard Tomic in the third round on Thursday.


Murray holds a comfortable 5-0 lead in overall meetings against Mathieu. The pair have never clashed in a Grand Slam event.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "I always enjoy coming back here. It's great preparation coming up to Wimbledon and they have a fantastic field again this year. I've had some great years here and some years haven't gone so well, but last year everything worked out perfectly. It was the start of the best summer of my tennis career. I'm excited to get going."
