2021 Queens Club Championships Preview: All you need to know
The Queens Club Championships finally returns after the Covid-19 pandemic forced its cancellation last year. With lots of British interest including Andy Murray and Dan Evans, how is the event shaping up?
Top 10 stars Matteo Berrettini and Diego Schwartzman will make their immediate transition to the grass courts after exiting Roland Garros at the quarter-final stage.
Canadian duo Denis Shapovalov and Milos Raonic will also feature, whilst Next Gen stars Jannik Sinner and Alex de Minaur also star in a high-quality field.
Tournament Director Luiz Carvalho said, “To add players like Matteo [Berrettini] and Jannik [Sinner] to our field is really exciting, and I know our ticket-holders will enjoy watching them. With so many fan favourites also entering, we are looking forward to the start of the cinch Championships more than ever.”
Also amongst the names is World No 62 and two-time Queens champion Feliciano Lopez (2017, 2019), who is currently the reigning champion and will make his first defence of the title this year.
The men’s main draw runs from 14-20 June.
There are a total of 32 players at Queens and 8 seeds. There are no first-round byes for the seeded players.
