With Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal dominating the men's game, there seems little chance of this summer being the first time a Briton has won the men's singles title at SW19 since Fred Perry lifted the trophy back in 1936.
Djokovic and Nadal have faced each other in the last four Grand Slam finals, and Murray's chances of winning his home tournament seem bleak after he exited the French Open last week at the last eight stage, although he was troubled by a back injury.
The Scot remains confident he can buck the trend and win Wimbledon this year, but admits his performance at Queen's will be crucial to his chances of success at Wimbledon.
"I've always liked to go in to a Grand Slam having played a couple of matches on the surface," said Murray, who is due to face either Nicolas Mahut or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez after receiving a first-round bye.
"I've won Queen's and I have always enjoyed playing here. I like the surface, the courts are pretty much perfect grass courts and I have great memories of it.
"I won my very first ATP match here when I was 18 and since then I've just really enjoyed coming back and I've got great results here."
Djokovic and Nadal's battle in Roland Garros over the last 24 hours will do little to suggest their monopoly on the game is about to end, but Murray has warned the duo not to expect to walk Wimbledon because of their exploits in Paris.
"You'll very rarely see someone make the French finals and then win on grass the next week," said Murray, who has won at Queen's twice in the last three years.
"It's a hard thing to do and it takes a bit of time.
"You try to go in to every tournament with the mentality of winning it, otherwise there's not much point in being there.
"Changing surfaces is not that easy."
Murray, who lost to David Ferrer in Paris, added: "I didn't want to lose early at the French Open, but I managed to get a couple of days off,
"Quarter-finals for me on probably my least favourite surface is not terrible. I would have liked to have done better, but it was okay."
