No panic from Murray
Andy Murray is keen to put his Aegon Championships defeat to Nicolas Mahut into perspective and will not press the panic button.
The British number one went into Wednesday's clash with the Frenchman as a strong favourite to win the match and claim the title for the third time in four years.
But he was unable to exert his authority over the world number 65 and went down in three sets at the first time of asking at Queen's Club.
Mahut played some superb tennis and has always been a tough customer on grass, beating Rafael Nadal en route to the 2007 final at the west Kensington venue.
Murray traditionally uses this event to fine-tune his grass-court preparation for Wimbledon, and a run to the latter stages is always beneficial, but he remains confident of being able to find his feet on the grass and refuses to read too much into the defeat.
"There is no need for me to panic," he said. "It takes a bit of time to adjust to the grass courts. I need a few days to get my movement right and then I'll play better."
The three-time SW19 semi-finalist admits that he does need to get some more court time on grass after his premature exit in west London but has made it clear it is unlikely that he will feature in another tournament before proceedings get underway at the All England Club.
"I'll discuss with the guys over the next couple of days as to what I'm going to do, whether I play one or two exhibition matches next week," he said.
"It's unlikely I would play a tournament but I'll probably try to get a couple more matches. I just need to spend more time on the grass."
