The British contingent in the singles at the Fever-Tree Championships has been handed tough draws with Kyle Edmund facing top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas and Cameron Norrie opening his campaign against former runner-up Kevin Anderson.

The winner of the Edmund-Tsitsipas clash will face Jeremy Chardy or Mikhail Kukushkin in the second round while 2014 Queen’s champion Grigor Dimitrov or up and coming Canadian youngster Felix Auger-Aliassime will be the quarter-final opponent.

Juan Martin del Potro is in the same half of the draw and he kicks off his campaign against another Canadian teenager in Denis Shapovalov while the Argentine could meet Milos Raonic in the quarters.

There are three Brits in the bottom half of the draw with No 2 Norrie starting against second seed and 2015 runner-up Anderson, who is returning to action after skipping the clay-court season due to injury.

British No 3 Dan Evans, meanwhile, starts his campaign against three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka and they could potentially play the winner of the Anderson-Norrie clash in the quarter-final.

Wildcard Jay Clarke faces Lucas Pouille in the first round and the other danger men in that quarter include fourth seed Daniil Medvedev and former Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic.
