The 2020 Fever-Tree Championships will once again boast an impressive line-up as Andy Murray hopes to be fit for the tournament while Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Feliciano Lopez have been confirmed.
Murray has not played any competitive tennis since the Davis Cup in November last year as he has pulled out of a string of tournaments during the first few months of this year.
He is yet to confirm when he will make his comeback, but many believe he will skip the clay-court season in order to focus on grass.
Murray, a five-time singles champion at Queen’s Club, also used last year’s Fever-Tree Championships to regain fitness ahead of Wimbledon, but he only played doubles alongside Lopez and they went all the way to win the title.
However, tournament officials are hopeful that he will be fit enough to compete in the singles this year.
Top 10 stars Medvedev and Tsitsipas will be competing for the title while Lopez will return to defend his singles crown.
“We are thrilled to be have received early commitments to play in the Fever-Tree Championships from two Top 10 players in Daniil and Stefanos, and such legendary figures at The Queen’s Club in Feliciano and Andy,” Tournament Director Stephen Farrow said.
“Daniil and Stefanos have shown that they can beat anyone in the world, Feliciano’s win last year was incredibly emotional and uplifting, and Andy is our greatest champion. We know Andy is still working his way back to fitness, but we also know that he wants to play, so fingers crossed that he will be able to.”
World No 5 Medvedev has seven ATP Tour titles to his name, but he is yet to win a tournament on grass and he hopes to change that this year.
“The last six months have been incredible for me, a real breakthrough, and now I want to try to do the same on grass,” he said. “The Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen’s Club is a great event with perfect grass courts, and I am looking forward to playing there ahead of Wimbledon.”
The 2020 Fever-Tree Championships will take place from 15-21 June.
