Andy Murray to return to Queen’s Club this summer

Andy Murray, a five-time record champion, says he “can’t wait” to play at the Queen’s Club and the tournament will return as part of the LTA’s summer grass court events.

Murray and British number one Evans will compete for the title, and in doubles, 2017 champions Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares will be back.

Wimbledon’s key warm-up event will take place June 14-20 after it was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Murray will play singles for Queen's for the first time since 2018 and will look forward to a first win since winning his fifth title in 2016.

Murray will play singles for Queen’s for the first time since 2018 and will look forward to a first win since winning his fifth title in 2016.

Former world number one Murray first won the title in 2009, then again in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016, completing the Queen’s-Wimbledon double twice (2013, 2016).

Two years ago, he joined forces with Feliciano López to win a memorable doubles title just months after undergoing hip surgery.

“It has been a very difficult time for everyone and it will be great to play in front of the local fans in Great Britain again,” said Murray.

“The tournament at Queen’s has always meant a lot to me – it’s where I won my first ATP match, I won the singles at Queen’s more than anyone else in my career and I will never forget our doubles title in 2019. I can’t wait to go back.”

Evans says he is excited about what awaits him with the world number 26 enjoying the best period of his career having won his first ATP title in Melbourne before reaching the semifinals on clay in Monte Carlo.

“I know how fortunate we have been to be able to continue practicing this sport in recent months, it has been a good year for me on the court and I am looking forward to playing grass for the next few months,” he said. Evans.

“It’s a surface I’ve always loved, and being able to play the Cinch Championships at Queen’s in front of British fans will again be brilliant.”

New Tournament Director Luiz Carvalho was delighted to confirm the involvement of Evans and the Murray brothers, saying: “Dan has achieved fantastic results in the last 12 months and it will be very interesting to see him on grass this year. Andy and Jamie’s records speak for themselves, we are very excited to have them back and we know the fans will be too. “

This year’s event will be able to host approximately 25 per cent of its normal total capacity, and the event will be socially distanced, in line with current security protocols required by the UK government and the ATP Tour.

The full list of registrants for singles will be released next week. Queen’s comes straight after this year’s French Open, and the Grand Slam is pushed back a week in an attempt to allow more fans to attend.
