As well as the Murray-Bedene first round match, there is plenty of British interest throughout the 32-man draw.

#Andy Murray will be kicking off his grass-court season once again at the Aegon Championships at Queen's.

Canada's Milos Raonic says he is in great shape mentally, thanks to the clay court season, as he prepares to try and go one better than past year at the grass court tournaments of Queen's and Wimbledon.

'I think for pretty much all of my career, yeah, I think that would have been the case, ' he said ahead of Queen's. "I would hope to still be playing at the next Olympics".

Murray beat Bedene in the second round at Queen's a year ago and if he wins again, he will face either 2010 Queen's champion Sam Querrey or another Briton - wildcard Cameron Norrie - in the last 16. If you look at the titles and everything those guys have won I can't compare myself to them, ' he said.

The 30-year-old Scot, who reached the semi-finals at the French Open before losing a five-setter to Stan Wawrinka, said he would "make the most of every tournament" while he was still competitive.

'But it's not true of the past year because I'm ranked No. 1 in the world.

Meanwhile, Nadal has only to defend 370 points the rest of the year.

The top-ranked will begin his Aegon Championship campaign against fellow countryman Aljaz Bedene.

Earlier in the week, the focus had been on his potential retirement in a few years' time but after a couple of positive days hitting back on grass, Murray sounds as fresh as ever. There's a lot of expectation during this period, so it can be a bit stressful. The picture will become clearer at the end of this week but the pressure is undoubtedly on Murray to fight hard for his place at the top and he is well aware a sixth victory at Queen's would be the flawless preparation for defending his Wimbledon title.

Murray has suggested he may only have two or three more years left challenging for major honours, despite Federer defying his age by winning the Australian Open aged 35 in January.

He now heads into the grass-court season with a chance to make it a hat-trick of titles at the ATP 500 tournament and extend his record-breaking five trophies he has collated since 2009.

The Scot is now the world's top ranked men's singles player and has won more tournaments than Federer, Nadal and Djokovic since his triumph at the Queen's Club previous year.

Murray added: "If my body is good and I stay fit and healthy, if I still enjoy the training, the travelling, I love what I do, that's not the issue, but you never know how you're going to be in a couple of years physically".
