Andy Murray has received a wildcard to compete at the Queen’s Club Championship which will be played from June 14-20, 2021. The tournament is a part of the ATP 500 Category, and is one of the important tournaments in lead up to Wimbledon 2021.

The Briton has accepted the wildcard to compete at the tournament, and was delighted to return back to the event, where he had won his first ATP match.

“The tournament at Queen’s has always meant a lot to me,” Murray said. “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,” he added.

Andy Murray has an impressive record at the Queen’s Club tournament, having lifted the title on five occasions in the past in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016.

Andy Murray all set to return to action on grass

Andy Murray has been a prolific grass court player over the years, and has two Wimbledon titles to his name which he won in 2013 and 2016. The Briton has not played a singles match in over three months, and decided to skip the French Open this year.

Andy Murray competed in the Doubles event at Italian Masters, where he lost in the second round itself. His best result of the year came at Challenger Biella, where he reached the finals, eventually losing to Ilya Marchenko in straight sets.

It will be a huge task for Andy Murray to perform well on grass courts this year, because of his limited involvement on tour so far. He has competed in just three singles tournaments this year, which includes the Rotterdam Open and Open Sud de France.
