Queen's is considered one of the most prestigious grass court tournaments, as well as one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world, and serves as a warm-up for Wimbledon. Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt dominated the tournament in the early 21st century, each winning four titles.[2] Andy Murray won a record five titles between 2009 and 2016. Andy Roddick has called the courts at the Queen's Club "arguably the best in the world".[3]

HistoryEdit

 
Andy Murray won five titles at The Queens Club, more than any other player

Originally known as the London Athletic Club Tournament, established in 1881 at Stamford Bridge, Fulham. In 1884 the tournament was given the title of the Championship of London, and it was on held outdoor grass courts.[4] In 1890, the tournament moved to its current location, the Queen's Club and consisted of a men's and women's singles event. In 1903 a men's doubles event was added followed in 1905 by the mixed doubles competition. In 1915 the addition of a women's doubles event completed the programme. The two World Wars interrupted the tournament from 1913–1918 and 1940–1946. Between 1970 and 1989 the Championships were part of the Grand Prix tennis circuit. The women's tournament was discontinued after the 1973 edition and from 1974 until 1976 no men's tournament was held.[5] The event is currently an ATP World Tour 500 series tournament on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour and was upgraded from an ATP World Tour 250 series in 2015.[6][7] The tournament was voted ATP Tournament of the Year for four years consecutively between 2013-2014 when it was an ATP 250 tournament and between 2015-2016 when it was an ATP 500 tournament. It then won it again in 2018 and 2019.

During the 2004 singles tournament, Andy Roddick set the then world record for the fastest serve, recorded at 153 mph (246.2 km/h) during a straight-set victory over Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan in the quarter-finals.[8]

In 2016, Andy Murray won the singles title for a record fifth time. Seven men have won four singles titles; Major Ritchie, Anthony Wilding, Roy Emerson, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick.

ScheduleEdit

The Queen's Club Championships are held every year in June. They start one week after the clay-court French Open and conclude one week before the start of the grass court Wimbledon Championships, which are held just 4 miles (6 km) away. The equivalent warm-up event for women is the Eastbourne International, although this is held one week later.

Up to 2014, the break between the French Open and Wimbledon was just two weeks, and the Queen's Club Championships started the day after the French Open's men's final. This changed when Wimbledon moved back a week to expand the length of the grass court season.[9]

Grass courts are the least common playing surface for top-level events on the ATP World Tour. The 2009 schedule included only four grass court tournaments in the run-up to Wimbledon. They were the Queen's Club Championships, Gerry Weber Open, Eastbourne International, and the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships. An additional tournament is played on grass in Newport, Rhode Island, USA, in the week immediately after Wimbledon.

CoverageEdit

Queen's enjoys full coverage on the BBC in the UK, via BBC television, BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Sport online. It was shown in High Definition for the first time in 2009. From 2018, Amazon Prime[10] will also broadcast from The Queen's Club in the UK.

The ball girls for the Aegon Championships are provided by Nonsuch High School and St Philomena's Catholic High School for Girls, two schools in the London Borough of Sutton.[11]

SponsorshipEdit

From 1979 until 2008, the tournament was sponsored by Stella Artois, and thus called the Stella Artois Championships.[12] In 2009 the tournament was renamed the Aegon Championships following a comprehensive sponsorship deal between Lawn Tennis Association and Aegon, which also led to renaming of Birmingham and Eastbourne grass court events.[13] In 2018, Fever-Tree began sponsoring the tournament – their first title sponsorship of a sporting event.
