Berrettini, Murray Seek To Make Their Mark At Queen’s Club; All You Need To Know
The ATP Tour returns to London next week, with World No. 9 Matteo Berrettini making his debut at the cinch Championships, an ATP 500 grass-court tournament. The Italian, who reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros (l. to Djokovic), faces compatriot Stefano Travaglia in the first round.
Former World No. 1 Andy Murray will be back in action after accepting a wild card into the event. Murray became the first player to win five Queen's Club titles (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015-16), separating himself from the elite group of players who have won four Queen's Club crowns, including John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick. Murray will face top seed Berrettini in the second round if he overcomes Benoit Paire first.
The Brit, who last played singles in Rotterdam this March, will also be joined by second seed Denis Shapovalov, who begins against a qualifier. The 22-year-old Canadian is in the same half as #NextGenATP star Jannik Sinner, with the two projected to meet in the semi-finals. Sinner faces British wild card Jack Draper in the first round. Also competing is reigning singles and doubles champion Feliciano Lopez, with the Spaniard starting against Filip Krajinovic, while two-time titlist Marin Cilic will play a qualifier.
