The Great British summer got its claws into Andy Murray’s tilt at a fourth Queen’s Club title on Saturday, with bad weather drawing his semi-final clash with Viktor Troicki to a premature halt after just six games. Murray and Troicki will now have to play Sunday morning in order to determine who reaches the final.
Whichever man progresses will be at a significant disadvantage against big-serving South African Kevin Anderson, who overpowered Giles Simon 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 with a performance that contained fully 34 aces. If it is Murray that progresses to face the big South African, he’ll be hoping some of new coach Jonas Bjorkman’s fabled returning has rubbed off on him. The Swede has taken sole charge of Murray for the first time this week, and will do so for the entirety of the hard-court season post Wimbledon, as Amelie Mauresmo takes a break for the birth of her first child.
In the UK, the tennis is free to watch on BBC One, with coverage originally scheduled to start at 2:05pm BST. Given Murray’s semi-final will be played Sunday morning, we expect their coverage will start sooner than that. If you’re feeling all anti-establishment, or have an irrational hatred of Sue Barker, British Eurosport also has live coverage of the final from 2pm.
In the US The Tennis Channel has live coverage of the the Aegon Championships and other tournaments around Europe from 7am Eastern, with the final at Queen’s likely to start around 9am Eastern.
