2005 Jun 06 - Wimbledon wildcard for Murray

Andrew Murray had already earned a wildcard for Wimbledon based on his stunning progress over the past year, and shortly after his first ATP win at Queens' club his wildcard entry was confirmed.

Before hearing of the official announcement he told BBC sport:

"I don't play badly on grass, it's just not my favourite surface. I play well on all of them.

"If I'm not playing against the best grass-court players I can do well when I'm playing the baseliners.

"I think it's fair that there's a lot of expectation because after Tim and Greg there's not so many players coming through.

"I try to block out the pressure but it's always going to be there and hopefully one day I can get to do what Tim and Greg have done."

Andrew will join wildcard compatriots Alan Mackin, David Sherwood, Jonathan Marray and Josh Goodall in the men's main draw.

British women who have already been handed wildcards include No.1 Elena Baltacha, Amanda Janes, Anne Keothavong and Katie O'Brien.
