Andy Murray Receives Wild Card Into Queen's Club

  • Posted: Jun 10, 2021

Five-time cinch Championships winner Andy Murray has accepted a wild card into the ATP 500 tournament, which will be played from 14-20 June.

“The tournament at Queen’s has always meant a lot to me,” Murray said according to a release. “It’s where I won my first ATP match. I’ve won the singles at Queen’s more than any other [tournament] in my career, and I’ll never forget our doubles title in 2019. I can’t wait to get back out there.”

Murray has a 30-7 singles record at the grass-court tournament, where he has lifted the trophy in 2009, 2011-13 and 2015-16. In 2019, in his first tournament after undergoing hip surgery following the Australian Open, Murray won the doubles title at this event alongside Feliciano Lopez.

The World No. 123 last played singles in Rotterdam this March. Murray competed in doubles at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome, where he also trained with the likes of World No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

Liam Broady also received a wild card into the main draw of the cinch Championships. The British lefty will pursue his first win at the tournament, where he competed in 2012 and 2017.
