Murray also confirmed coach Amelie Mauresmo will not join his back-room staff at Queen's Club, but will be on hand for Wimbledon.
I took three and a half days off after Paris and then practised the last couple of days at Wimbledon then came here today; this is the first day I've practised here.
They were three full days off any training or anything. I needed to rest and recover. I was actually sick for about a week, really, so I needed to recover from that too.
To be honest, I actually felt okay, but the day I played (David) Ferrer (in the quarter-finals) I didn't feel great.
When I got on the court and started running around it was fine, but when I got back my left eye closed up, and I had a bad cough for a couple of days.
I don't know whether I was just run down or tired, but it had been a long few weeks - but I feel fine now.

A tired Andy Murray paid the price for his unexpected success on clay by withdrawing from the Italian Open.
The world number three had made it 10 wins in a row on Wednesday with a straight-sets victory over Frenchman Jeremy Chardy that put him into the last 16 in Rome.
I'm very tired just now and I need to take a break.
I didn't expect to do what I've done the past few weeks. My body has never been through that before on the clay. It's a surface I've always struggled on physically. My body's always found the surface difficult. This year, it's been very good.
I also don't want to risk making it worse; in the past, I've maybe trained too much. I wanted to play in this event. It's a big tournament, a lot of points on offer. The time of year is tough on everyone and it's just one of those things.
There's no long-term injuries to worry about. Things are a little bit stiff and sore because of the amount of matches I've played.
