Del Potro withdraws from Queen's Club tournament with injury

Andy Murray will be launching his grass season next week at the Aegon Championships held at the Queen's Club, June 19-25.

Ireland hooker Best, who has made 104 worldwide appearances, also led his country to their first ever win over New Zealand in November. Agassi left the French Open midway through the tournament.

During the French Open, the man who described himself as "the CEO of Milos Raonic Tennis" was asked for his latest 12-month report.

Stanning and her rowing partner Helen Glover became GB's first female rowers to win back-to-back Olympic golds when they retained the coxless pairs title in Rio after their London 2012 triumph.

"It's hard to describe what he's done, not just this year, but to win 10 times there". That's how awesome it is.


"Now being on two (Wimbledon titles), going in there this year with a chance to get third, I don't how many more opportunities I'm going to get to be competing for the Grand Slams".

Having finished previous year ranked third, he has now dropped to sixth, but he began preparations for the grass-court season this week feeling very positive about his game.

The world No.1 has given his clearest indication yet he is preparing for retirement - fearing he simply can not maintain a gruelling workload.

"I'm not expecting to be winning Grand Slams until I'm 35 or 36, so I'll try to make the most of the last few years", Murray told Sky Sports.

"Roger has played wonderful this year, but is also coming on the back of a big break, so it'll be interesting to see how he comes back from that".


Last year, the Aegon Championships was voted ATP-500 Tournament of the Year by the players - the fourth successive year that the event has received a tournament of the year award.

Murray ended champion at Queen's in 2013 and 2016, the years he went all the way at The All England Club.

"Maybe I am a little bit more on my toes when he is around, which is a good thing".

The first round of matches at Wimbledon begin July 3.
