London:

Andy Murray joined Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in confirming on Wednesday he will play at Queen's Club, the warmup tournament for Wimbledon.


The No. 4-ranked Murray will be looking to reclaim the Queen's title he won in 2009, when he didn't drop a set.

"Usually players that have done well at Queen's have gone on to do well at Wimbledon. I can't wait to get playing," Murray said.

Murray reached the final of the Australian Open in January before losing to Djokovic, but hasn't won a match or a set in three tournaments since - his worst run of form since turning professional.

The Scottish player split with part-time consultant Alex Corretja last month and was searching for a new coach.

Murray said he'd "like to make a decision as soon as possible," and in the interim was working with Darren Cahill and Sven Groeneveld, coaches involved in the player development program of his sponsor Adidas.

"It's not the fix to what I'm looking for but short term, while I'm looking for the right person, there are some people there with a lot of experience who can help me," Murray said.

"They've worked with players in this situation quite a lot before. I'll stay with them, but I'm still looking for someone full-time."

Juan Martin del Potro and four-time winner Andy Roddick have also said they will play at Queen's in west London starting on June 6.
