The current French Open champion will return to the Aegon Championships for the third straight year, and has enjoyed decent results. He was a semi-finalist in 2014, and has reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the last two years.
In a statement, Wawrinka said: “I am very happy to be playing the Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club in June.
“It is one of the longest-running and most respected tournaments on the ATP World Tour, with amazing grass courts and a great atmosphere. Also, many players have gone on to do well at Wimbledon after playing Queen’s, and this happened to me the last two years. I reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals both times – my best results at Wimbledon so far.”
Queen’s has often been regarded as a crucial warm-up event for The Championships, and both Nadal and Murray completed the Queen’s and Wimbledon double (Nadal – 2008, Murray 2013).
Tournament Director, Stephen Farrow said: “Stan Wawrinka is one of the most spectacular shot-makers in tennis, and the third Grand Slam singles champion to commit to playing at this year’s Aegon Championships.,” said Farrow. “We know that our spectators will be excited at the prospect of seeing Stan, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal in action.”
Tara McGregor-Woodhams, Head of Brand, Sponsorship and Digital Marketing Aegon UK said: “To already have three of the biggest names in tennis signed up to play the Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club is a testament to the appeal of the event and the magnificent work put in by the tournament team. We are very much looking forward to the start of the tournament in June.”
The Aegon Championships will take place between 13-19 June.
