LONDON: Andy Murray started his bid to retain the title at Queen's Club with a 7-6 (10/8), 6-3 victory over Spain's Ivan Navarro in the second round on Tuesday.
Fourth seed Andy Roddick, another top player who struggled on the clay at Roland Garros before being knocked out in the third round by Russian qualifier Teimuraz Gabashvili, also enjoyed being back on the grass.
The American is a four-time winner at Queen's and the world number seven looked eager to reclaim the title he last won in 2007 as he dismissed Russian Igor Kunitsyn 6-2, 6-1 in just 50 minutes.
Germany's Rainer Schuttler knocked out Gael Monfils in the second round with a surprise 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 6-2 win over the French sixth seed.
Gonfils's compatriot Richard Gasquet fared better as the 11th seed defeated America's Rajeev Ram 6-3, 7-5 to set up a third-round meeting with Schuttler.
In the remaining first-round matches, Grigor Dimitrov beat British wildcard Alex Bogdanovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a rain-interrupted clash. Colombian 13th seed Giraldo defeated Evgeny Korolev 7-6 (8/6), 4-6, 6-3, while Belgium's Xavier Malisse beat Russia's Dmitry Tursunov 6-2, 7-6 (7/3).
France's Nicolas Mahut, a runner-up at Queen's in 2007, cruised past Lu Yen-Hsun of Taipei 7-6 (7/2), 6-4. America's Fish was too strong for Somdev Devvarman of India, winning 6-1, 6-4.
