Wawrinka eases to opening win at Queen's

Cameron Norrie suffered an early exit from the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club on Monday as Stan Wawrinka made light work of the British No 2. But mentally, it's tough when you see how far you are and how long it will take. "I need to be really patient with myself, to accept less, in a way, because when you have won a Grand Slam, I always expect so much from myself and always push myself to the maximum".

The 33-year-old arrived in west London having lost six of his last seven ATP Tour matches and, given grass has never been Wawrinka's favourite surface, he might have feared more misery at the pre-Wimbledon event.

Querrey, who beat Andy Murray in his last competitive match almost a year ago, eased beyond British wildcard Jay Clarke 6-3 6-3 and will provide stiff competition for the three-time Grand Slam champion.

Top seed Marin Cilic, runner-up at Wimbledon a year ago to Roger Federer, looked razor sharp as he came through a potentially tricky opener against Spain's Fernando Verdasco.

The Croatian, runner-up to Feliciano Lopez past year, dispatched Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-4.

Shapovalov was left to rue his failure to convert a set point in the opener as he bowed out against the man who ended Rafael Nadal's Wimbledon hopes a year ago.

Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund, Dan Evans, and Novak Djokovic, are all due in first round action on Tuesday. "Pretty disappointed I didn't win against Roger but it was a good match", Kyrgios said.

"I'm feeling confident. I'm excited (to play Murray), obviously one of my better mates on tour".

But this one win has already boosted Wawrinka 40 places in the ranks, and should he go on and win the title, it would catapult him back inside the top 100. So I just need to take every match, every win as something really positive and keep doing the right job every day to give myself chance to come back quickly to the top level'.

The Swiss squandered several set points in the opening set and although he took the second on a tiebreak he capitulated in the decider after dropping serve at 1-2, losing 7-5 6-7 (3) 6-1.
