The grass courts ATP events are now in full swing, and one of the more popular events is the Aegon Championships, which will take place in London, United Kingdom, between June 13 and June 19. The event is part of the ATP World Tour 500.
This will be the 113th edition of this prestigious tournament, which has been won previously by household names like Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Murray. Andy Murray is the current holder of the title, beating Kevin Anderson in straight sets in last year's final. The top seeds at this year's tournament are Britain's Andy Murray, Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka, Canadian Milos Raonic, French Richard Gasquet and Croatian Marin Cilic. It should be straight forward enough for top seed Andy Murray to get to the quarter final where I expect him to face Gilles Simon. Similarly, both Richard Gasquet and Martin Cilic should have no troubles before encountering one another in the quarterfinals. I'm tipping Sam Querrey to upset Roberto Bautista Agut on the way to setting up a quarter final match with Milos Raonic, while John Isner vs Stan Wawrinka should make up the last quarter final. I expect Richard Gasquet to get past Martin Cilic, but eventually fall to Andy Murray in the semifinals. Sam Querrey, I'm expecting to beat Milos Raonic and set up a semifinal with Stan Wawrinka, a semifinal I expect the Swiss 2 time grand slam winner to win.
This should set up a mouthwatering Andy Murray vs Stan Wawrinka final. Andy Murray is the better player on grass, and I expect him to win against his fierce rival, and retain the title he won 12 months ago.

By far one of the most prestigious and oldest Tennis tournaments which still take place, the Queens Club Championships have a long and rich history of nail-biting matches as well being a platform for the earliest Tennis champions to play at, they are back again and will be played between 9th and 15th of June.
As usual with such tournaments, the total prize is just over 700,000 Euros, and this will be played on the Grass Courts of the Queen’s Club in London, United Kingdom. It is the 111th edition of the tournament and will feature 56 Singles rounds and 24 Doubles rounds. It was once called the London Grass Courts Championships, but has now changed name with the change of venue. While right now it is part of the ATP World Tour 250 Series, next year it will be upgraded to the ATP World Tour 500 Series.
We have seen Andy Roddick’s fastest serve of a whopping 153 mph in 2004 in this tournament, as well as him and Lleyton Hewitt dominating the tournament from 2000 to 2007, until Rafael Nadal ended their streak. This year we have defending champion Andy Murray come back to defend his title.

Marin Cilic will enter the Aegon Championships 2013 as the defending champion but he will face a challenging draw from the likes of Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych going into the tournament.
The 2013 AEGON Championships is called the Queen's Club Championships and will be played on outdoor grass courts. This is the 110th time the tournament is being played and belongs to the ATP World Tour 250 series of the season. The tournament will be hosted by the Queens Club in London, United Kingdom, in the club's 127th year between 10 and 16 June. World number two Andy Murray has been top seeded for the competition and will be the favourite going into the tournament. The big question though is whether he will be fit in time for the competition after missing the French Open with an injury. Also competing in the tournament is Berdych, seeded two, who will look to ensure he can overcome his poor form at the French Open and try and go the distance on a surface he loves to play on.
Some of the other top-notch players competing in the AEGON Championships are Juan Martin Del Potro who is seeded number three and recent French Open semi-finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
