Welcome to The Queen's Club
Determined Del Potro joins star-studded line-up at Queen’s
The Olympic silver-medallist Juan Martin del Potro is the fourth Grand Slam champion to join the Aegon Championships line-up at The Queen’s Club, adding his name to those of World No.1 Andy Murray, 14-time Grand Slam title winner Rafael Nadal and the reigning US Open champion, Stan Wawrinka.
Del Potro, who narrowly lost out to Murray in the Olympic final in Rio last year, and then gained revenge a couple of months later in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas semifinals before leading Argentina to glory in the final, can’t wait to return.
“I am so happy to be coming back to the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club. It is a great event, to me a very traditional moment of the calendar, such a nice place to play in front of fans that have always been nice to me. I have some very special memories from reaching the Wimbledon semifinals in 2013, winning the bronze medal at the Olympics in London 2012, and playing the Davis Cup in Scotland last year. The people were good to me even when I was playing Andy (Murray)! I want to try to bring my best tennis to the grass at Queen’s this year and if I do, I think I can make some good results.”
Aegon Championships Tournament Director Stephen Farrow, said: “Juan Martin is hugely popular both on and off the court and we are delighted that he is returning to the Aegon Championships. Everyone knows what a brilliant player he is, and he showed in the Olympics and the Davis Cup last year that he can still take on and beat the very best players in the world.”
