London | Murray’s wildcard reserved as Queen’s announce 2019 entry list

The five-time champion is attempting a comeback on tour following surgery on his right hip, and will consider featuring at this year’s Fever-Tree Championships.

As usual, the Fever-Tree Championships will feature a star-studded line-up. The tournament is beloved for its spotless grass courts, and was voted the best ATP World Tour 500 tournament for the third time in four years by the players.

However, the most notable piece of information revealed by the Club’s website is that a wildcard entry has been reserved for British tennis legend Andy Murray, should he choose to accept it. Murray has been given a similar option by the All England’s Club, with a deadline set for June 18.

Murray underwent hip surgery in late January, and has since been pain-free, according to his public statements. Derek McMinn, the surgeon who invented the BHR (the type of surgery that Murray had), has gone on record to state that his chance to come back to the game are “in the high 90 percent” in an interview with the Times. The Dunblane native has also hinted that he might play doubles to test his hip, before electing on a comeback.

If Murray were to participate, this would mark the first time since 2006 that three British players earned a main draw spot, since Kyle Edmund and Cameron Norrie both made the cut, and more might get a chance via the qualifying round.

Marin Cilic will try to repeat the past year's success.

The entry list is headlined by 2018 Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson, who will try to lift the unwieldy trophy after losing the in the final in 2015, although he has been dealing with a right elbow injury as of late, which will likely make him miss the whole clay season.

He will be joined by defending champion Marin Cilic, who rallied from the brink of defeat to deny Novak Djokovic the title last June – there aren’t many tournaments that the Serbian has never managed to conquer.

Other fan favourites include star-crossed champion Juan Martin Del Potro and NextGen stand-outs Stefanos Tsitsipas, Denis Shapovalov, and Felix Auger-Aliassime, as well as Milos Raonic, who reached the finals on both London lawns in 2016.

Finally, the Queen’s Club’s website announced that the very first Paul Hutchins Trophy, named after the long-tenured Davis Cup captain, who passed away on March 14, will be contested between a British and American 18-and-under-team.
