Andy Murray is hopeful that his Aegon Championships victory will stand him in good stead when Wimbledon begins later this month.
The Briton won two matches - a rain-delayed semi-final against Viktor Troicki and the final against Kevin Anderson - in straight sets on Sunday to claim a fourth Queen's Club title.
Last time Murray won at Queen's, in 2013, he went on to be crowned Wimbledon champion and he is eyeing a repeat this year.
"Both matches today were good performances," he said on court after defeating Anderson 6-3 6-4 in the final. "I played better as the week went on and hopefully I can continue that into Wimbledon.
"I tried to play each point and come up with some great shots. I had to play that way if I wanted to win.
"I'm playing better than I did in 2013, but it's extremely difficult to win these events. People are improving all the time.
"You want to go into Wimbledon with grass matches under your belt. It's been a long few months and I need to take a day or two off and prepare as best as I can."
Murray saw off the threat of Troicki 6-3 7-6 (7-4) - having resumed at 3-3 in the first following rain on Saturday - before getting just two hours to prepare for big-serving South African Anderson, who succumbed to a break in each set.
