Andy confirms 2014 title defence at Queens
Andy has confirmed that he will return to The Queen’s Club on the 9th-15th June to try to join some illustrious names as the only four-time winners of one of the most famous trophies in tennis.
Andy lifted the giant silver cup for the third time at the Aegon Championships seven months ago before becoming the first British man to triumph at The Championships, Wimbledon in 77 years. Andy currently has the same number of titles (3) as Jimmy Connors, and one more than Pete Sampras and his own coach Ivan Lendl. A fourth title at The Queen’s Club would put Andy alongside John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick at the top of the honour roll in the Open Era.
Commenting on the announcement of his title defence Andy said “To win the title for the third time last year and then to go on to win Wimbledon was really special, and it highlights the importance of Queen’s. The grass courts there are as good as any in the world and it’s a great event. It’s also a tournament with a lot of history, both personally for me and for the game as a whole. It’s where I won my first professional match and my first title in Britain, and when you look at the names on the trophy, including my coach Ivan Lendl, it shows how big a tournament it is to win. I’d love to do it again.”
