Andy Murray admits he will have to improve dramatically to mount a successful defence of his Wimbledon title after the World No. 1 suffered an embarrassing Queen's Club exit.
Murray crashed to one of the worst defeats of his career on Tuesday as Australian World No. 90 Jordan Thompson ended his reign as Queen's champion with an astonishing 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 first round victory. Murray looks bereft of form and focus and conceded a lack of confidence was a factor. "I don't feel like loads of my game has changed, but obviously right now I'm not playing as well as I was 12 months ago," he said.
"Most of that comes down to confidence. It's not so much that I have changed my serve or my technique. It's just when you're playing a lot of matches and winning consistently helps you make better decisions. If I play like that, I certainly won't win Wimbledon, but I can play better than that," he added.
