Welcome to The Queen's Club
'Pumped' Kyrgios targets grass court glory after joining star-studded Queen’s line-up
Nick Kyrgios, ‘the most exciting young player in tennis’, has added his name to the Aegon Championships line-up, which takes place at The Queen’s Club, 19th-25th June.
Kyrgios joins World No.1 Andy Murray, 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal, reigning US Open champion Stan Wawrinka, last year’s Queen’s and Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic and the 2014 Aegon Championships winner, Grigor Dimitrov, in the singles field. Jamie Murray has already confirmed he will be part of the doubles draw.
“I’m real excited and pumped to be coming back to Queen’s,” said Kyrgios. “It’s a great tournament, with Wimbledon soon after, and I love playing on grass. It’s my favourite surface, it suits my game a lot and I’m expecting big things on grass this year.”
Kyrgios, 22, has twice beaten former World No.1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets over the past month, with illness forcing him out of the quarterfinals in Indian Wells last week. He beat Nadal at Wimbledon in 2014 on his way to the quarterfinals in his debut year at the tournament, but he expects that to be just the beginning of his achievements on grass.
“I don’t think British people have seen the best of me yet. I was very young when I had that run at Wimbledon. Mentally I have improved a lot recently, I’m in a great place at the moment, I feel like I’ve matured and that’s helping me. I’m playing better tennis, I’m getting some better results.”
