Andy Murray won the Surbiton final, breaking the age record ahead of Wimbledon

Andy Murray withdrew from the French Open in order to focus on Wimbledon, where he had won two majors.

Andy Murray praised his “perfect start to the grass season” as the three-time Grand Slam winner ramped up his Wimbledon preparations in grand style. Murray, 36, became the oldest grass-court champion on the ATP Challenger Tour on Sunday, defeating Austrian Jurij Rodionov 6-3, 6-2 in the final of the Lexus Surbiton Trophy to earn a seeding spot at Wimbledon next month.

It was his first singles triumph on grass since winning Wimbledon in 2016.

Murray withdrew from the French Open in order to focus on Wimbledon, where he had won two majors.

Murray used a tremendous shot collection to destroy Rodionov in less than an hour. Heavy rain halted play during the second set, but Murray won with more devastating serves.

The downpour created a nearly three-hour delay, which meant Murray’s children missed witnessing him triumph.

“They didn’t tell me they were coming, then obviously I won the first set, and my wife decided to bring (the kids) in case I won,” Murray explained.

“They arrived as the rain began to fall and then left as they removed the covers.” ‘Well done, we just arrived home, I can’t believe we didn’t stay,’ she messaged me.
