Andy Murray, as candid in defeat as he is humble in victory, admitted he Authentic Blake Martinez Youth Jersey has little chance of retaining his Wimbledon title next month, if he plays the way he did in losing to world No90 Jordan Thompson in the first round of the Aegon Championships. The five-times Queen’s Club champion admitted the shock defeat was “a big blow” so close to Wimbledon.The world No1 said: “This tournament has given me great preparation in the past. When I have done well here, Wimbledon has tended to go pretty well, too. But, if I play like that, I certainly won’t win Wimbledon. I can play better than that.”The 23-year-old Australian, who has been on the Tour for less than four years, was drafted in as a late lucky loser after Aljaz Bedene withdrew in the morning with an injured wrist and was, Murray conceded, a worthy 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 winner in an hour and 43 minutes. It was arguably Murray’s worst setback on grass since losing to Mardy Fish at Queen’s in 2010.Defeat has not wrecked Murray’s preparations to begin the defence of his Wimbledon title on Monday week but it has put a totally unexpected hole in them. Murray said he will consider playing in a grass-court exhibition event, either at Boodles or Hurlingham, to get some precious match time.Ecclestone was replaced by Carey within a week of the takeover and although given the role of chairman emeritus, has been removed from the decision-making process. In Geneva Carey confirmed this had been the first move in a long-term restructuring of F1.“The sport didn’t have an organisation before,” he said. “Bernie, to his credit, was a one-man show with financial and legal support. One of the things Authentic Eddie Robinson Youth Jersey we have done is put an organisation in place that can support the sport and we will have the key people in by August.”The Formula One Group has made considerable commitments to change the sport itself, including the appointment of Ross Brawn as the sporting director. Externally, progress has appeared slow with few concrete changes yet to emerge but Carey is confident in advances being made behind the scenes.“Priority one for us is still to make the sport and the competition on the track as exciting and engaging as it possibly can be,” he said.“Just the nature of what we do on the track – whether it’s rules, engines, costs – take time. We’ve had meetings on what is the next generation engine … That engine isn’t going to get implemented in three months but it doesn’t mean we haven’t had multiple meetings.”The FIA is holding the conference in Geneva to allow delegates from its 150 member nations to meet and exchange information, a goal that has been championed by its president, Jean Todt. Thus far in his negotiations with Carey he has been impressed. “We have had no conflict. They arrived humble, willing to learn, understand, participate and to work closely with the governing body. Which is important.”Nick Kyrgios was down at Queen’s Club on the first day of the Aegon Championships but emphatically not out of Wimbledon in two weeks’ time, he says – whatever the state of a lingering hip injury.The world No20 slipped on the sweating grass at 4-4 in the first set of his match against Donald Young on a steaming hot Monday afternoon, aggravating a chronic complaint he thought had healed, and retired after the American left-hander won the tie-break for the loss of three points.Kyrgios insisted he would play at Wimbledon even if he were injured. “Yeah, 100%. I’d play Wimbledon if I was injured pretty bad, anyway. I’m here, anyway. I don’t really have time to go home or anything. I will be playing, for sure. My main goal is to play well at Wimbledon. I’m going to try and get it better and rehab it and hopefully it settles down. I’m sure it will. There is no point of playing on if I’m feeling pain in my hip.”
