Andy Murray has won a record fifth Aegon Championship at Queen's Club after beating Milos Raonic. The world number two fell a set behind to the big-serving Canadian but came roaring back to seal a 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 6-3, to overtake John McEnroe and Boris Becker in title hauls in Wimbledon's warm-up event.
After a tight opening set, Raonic, coached by McEnroe, took the advantage in a tie-break in the opening set, smashing a forehand winner down the line that Murray could not reach.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a blistering start to the second, surging into a 3-0 lead before the Briton finally offered some resistance, clawing a game back with a sublime backhand return to end his run of service games. Murray took control from there on, winning the next two games before breaking his opponent with a fine forehand.
Murray has made a habit of falling behind and growing stronger late on throughout 2016 and the pattern continued at Queen's. After breaking his opponent again early on in the third with a superb drop shot, Raonic netted a return on third match point to hand him the victory.
Speaking to BBC One after the win, Murray said: "I guessed on a few serves and gained a bit of confidence on the returns but he's got a huge serve and sometimes it's just too good.
"But I got more of a feel for the speed of serves as the match went on. Coming out here to try and win for the fifth time I was really motivated.
"It was frustrating to be down a set and a break but I started to return well, and my serve worked very well the last couple of sets. I played some good stuff."
