Fever-Tree Championships Entry List Reveals Strongest Line-up in 128-Year History

LONDON, May 8, 2018 (Press Release)

The Fever-Tree Championships will feature the strongest line-up in its 128-year history at The Queen’s Club after more of the world’s Top 30 players entered the tournament than ever before.

17 of the Top 30 ranked players, including 6 of the Top 10, have signed up to play. The lowest-ranked player to enter is No.43 Denis Shapovalov, equalling the record for the lowest cut-off, set in 2015.

The World No.1 Rafael Nadal leads the field, ten years after his triumph in 2008, when he also won Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

He is joined by fellow Top 10 players Grigor Dimitrov (4), Marin Cilic (5), Juan Martin del Potro (6), Kevin Anderson (8) and David Goffin (10).

Also entered for the event that takes place 18th-24th June are five-time champion Andy Murray, three-time Grand Slam title winner Stan Wawrinka, and the 2016 runner-up at The Queen’s Club and Wimbledon, Milos Raonic.

The talented young trio of British No.1 Kyle Edmund, Nick Kyrgios and Denis Shapovalov have committed to return, as has the defending champion Feliciano Lopez and 2011 runner-up Jo Wilfried Tsonga.

Tournament Director Stephen Farrow, said: “To see 6 of the world’s Top 10 players on our entry list before you even get to the names Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic, Feliciano Lopez, Nick Kyrgios and the British No.1 Kyle Edmund really whets the appetite for a fantastic week of tennis in the Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen’s Club. We can’t wait to get started.”
