Greetings lads and lasses ! @Shash3011 here to bring you some all-Brit action from the very heart of UK. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง It's British no.1 ANDY MURRAY vs British no.2 ALJAZ BEDENE for a place in the Quarter Finals at the Queen's Club, London.

Slight delay to the start of this one on Centre Court. Light showers โ˜”โ˜”โ˜”about a half hour back meant the courts needed bit of sweeping before play could get underway. But we're on now ! Both players on court. Murray wins the toss and will serve first.

Not quite the crowd you'd expect considering this is the first time Andy Murray is playing a fellow Brit in over 10 years ! That too in the heart of London ! But we all know there's another all-Britain affair just minutes away from kick-off somewhere in France....So can't really complain ! โšฝโšฝโšฝโšฝโšฝ

Enough with all that. We're off with the tennis ! Murray gets in a good first serve to go up 15-0 at the start.

But he misses the next one and Bedene hammers down his 2nd serve. Couple more strong points from the Brit no.2 from the baseline get him to 30-30. And then a Murray forehand goes long. BREAK POINT BEDENE ! Well, how's that for starters ?

Ace down the gets Murray out of jail. He then strings together a couple more solid points coming swiftly to the net. Works ! Not quite the service game he'd have fancied to start off with, but Murray holds.

Tussle in Bedene's first service game as well. He makes all first serves but manages to win only half of them. Murray playing very smartly coming forward to the net. DEUCE.

Booming ace down the T gets Bedene game point. He takes it with both hands as Murray's forehand cross court flies wide. Bedene holds.

Did some stat digging just now. Apparently the last time Murray played a Brit, was way back in 2006 vs Tim Henman at Bangkok. He lost that match, his only loss to Henman in 4 meetings.

Back to the match at hand, Murray gets in a very solid hold-to-love after a troublesome opening service game. Couple of peach serves see Aljaz miss the return. He then nets a backhand and Andy seals it with an ace out wide.
