Andy Murray is the pick of the names confirmed to complete at Queen’s Club in June, as he prepares for a tilt at the Wimbledon title.

The Scot will be back to defend his AEGON Championships crown, which he won after victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final.

The Frenchman will also be back to also take his place in the field for the grass-court event, with Tsonga one of four top-10 players on the entry list.

Former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro will also arrive in London early this summer to feature at Queens with world number eight Janko Tipsarevic, one place above del Porto in the rankings, also set to feature.

Mardy Fish, beaten finalist in 2009, has confirmed his participation in the AEGON Championships, along with world number 11 Gilles Simon – who is looking to better his fourth round showing at Wimbledon this year.

World number one Novak Djokovic will not be there though, with strong suggestions that he will prepare for the third Slam of the year by playing at the Halle event.

The former Queen’s runner-up is likely to head to Germany, where their field is expected to feature Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Nadal, the 2008 winner, cited British tax laws for opting not to play at Queen's.

Four other big name players have also been confirmed though as participants - Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, David Nalbandian and four-time winner Andy Roddick, if he recovers in time from his latest injury setback.

Tournament director Chris Kermode said: "We are delighted that so many of world's leading players have chosen to compete at the AEGON Championships. We are looking forward to a fantastic week of tennis."

But it will be world number four Murray who will be the big draw for the fans, with the tournament set to begin on June 11.
