Lee Westwood was delighted to enjoy a successful week at the British Masters after a final-round 67 earned him outright third place at The Grove. Westwood managed to retain a positive attitude after a difficult month, failing to win any of his three matches in Europes Ryder Cup defeat at Hazeltine before missing the cut by a distance at last weeks Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Lee Westwood says he can take many positives from his third-place finish at the British Masters But after finishing just three shots adrift of Alex Noren, Westwood is now looking forward to the remainder of the season with renewed confidence and optimism. My attitude is always pretty good, said Westwood. Obviously, I think everybody was disappointed with the Ryder Cup and the Dunhill last week was a bit of a relapse from that really. I struggled to really get my head around playing again, getting back into the groove and getting my tournament head on. Lee Westwood can take a lot of positives from his week at The Grove It has been a successful week here. Everything has been back together and I played well. It was a nice performance to finish in the top three, so Im very pleased with that.So Im looking forward to the end of the season and to some big events coming up. The next one is the World Golf Championships and obviously the Turkish Airlines tournament and the Dubai World Championship. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. I can go there with lots of positives from this week. Ive hit the ball really well tee-to-green, and on the greens Ive been very solid. The short games good. I felt pretty comfortable all week and it was nice to play well.But it was also one of those weeks where I feel like I didnt make enough putts from 15 to 25 feet. I had a lot of chances. The greens are as good as Ive putted on in Britain in October for many a year. Westwood finished two shots ahead of playing partner Graeme McDowell Westwood finished two shots ahead of playing-partner and former Ryder Cup team-mate Graeme McDowell, who was happy with his first top-10 since the Scottish Open despite struggling to get to grips with the back nine at The Grove.It was a very pleasing week in general, he said. I wish I had felt as comfortable on the back nine as I did on the front nine all week but thats one of those things. Sometimes the golf course fits your eye in places and doesnt fit it in others. McDowell hailed The Grove as a spectacular venue The back nine really wasnt flicking my switches this week and I didnt play it very well. Especially holes like 18, I think I played it one-over for the week, which on a hole where Tiger Woods was seven-under par here in 2006 is slightly disappointing. Alex Noren survived a testing final day to clinch his third European Tour victory of the season at the British Masters But all in all, it was a great week and I thought The Grove was a spectacular venue. This golf tournament has re-established as one of the premier events on the European Tour and I thought we got incredibly lucky with the weather. Everything was made for a great week this week.You can watch Liverpool v Man Utd, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the United States Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

"I was looking forward to getting back on the court," Murray said. "I enjoy playing here. I love being back on the grass. "I thought I was quite disciplined with my movement today. I moved pretty well. I wasnt sliding about too much. Yeah, it was a good start." Top seed and Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka also advanced into the third round when Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus retired with a right shoulder injury as the Swiss led 3-2. There was victory too for 2011 finalist and fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France, who weathered a close first set before overwhelming Belgiums David Goffin 7-6 (5), 6-2. Since his loss to Roger Federer in the 2012 Wimbledon final, Murray has won 19 consecutive matches on grass and captured three titles, including the 2012 London Olympic gold at the All England Club, and Wimbledon and Queens last year. Murray hired former top-ranked player and two-time major winner Mauresmo as his coach on Sunday, initially for the grass-court season. He has been without a coach since he parted ways with Ivan Lendl in March. Hiring a female coach has generated a great deal of attention, and although he previously worked with his mother, Judy, for a long period, he admits that such a move at his level of the game was unusual. "At first when I thought about it, it was obviously a consideration, because for a few years I havent worked with a woman," he said. "Now the decision has been made, its not something that Im thinking about. Its more about the qualities that she can bring that will help me and my tennis and my team as well. I hope it works out long term because I like her. Shes a good person. I hope it works out well." Murray was impressed with Mauresmo when they met, and saw the qualities she could bring. "t;After I spoke to her the first time I just really liked her.dddddddddddd She was calm. She asked a lot of questions. She listened. She listened a lot. I liked chatting to her, so then I decided to sit down and speak to her and had a good chat with her about tennis. "This week, theres not going to be any big changes in my game. I also wouldnt expect any before Wimbledon. But well definitely work on some things after the tournament is finished here." Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver lost 6-4, 6-4 to Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine while Torontos Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia defeated Wawrinka and Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (4), 7-5. Pospisil also lost in mens doubles. Ernests Gulbis, who reached his maiden Grand Slam semifinal at the French Open last week, fell to Kenny De Schepper of France 7-6 (3), 7-5. "I like the grass," Gulbis, the sixth seed from Latvia said. "But I never played well the first tournament. I always played decent in Wimbledon if I practiced well. So now Im going to stay here, practice two weeks on grass. Im going to be fully fine for Wimbledon." Lleyton Hewitt remains one victory short of Roger Federers record of 122 match wins on grass after being beaten 6-3, 6-4 by Feliciano Lopez. Hewitt, a four-time champion at Queens, was broken once in each set and failed to earn a single break point against the Spaniard. Its the first time the Australian has lost to Lopez in five meetings. Hewitt had been bidding to become the first player to win Queens five times. He shares the record of four titles with Andy Roddick. "I played a bit of a loose game the second game of the match," he said. "Then, yeah, he served really well the whole match. He had a lot better rhythm today than he did yesterday in his first-round match. He hit his spots really well." Dmitry Tursunov of Russia and Nicolas Mahut of France were beaten, but there were wins for eighth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine and Radek Stepanek.
