Anyone in the least bit interested in tennis will have his or her favourite player. They will be hoping their hero will win the tournament they are playing in, and will be thrilled when they do. There are some competitions that raise more interest than others, the AEGON Championships being one of them.
As the world’s oldest lawn tennis tournament, the men only AEGON Championships are considered by many to be the second best in the world, only being eclipsed by Wimbledon. It has been held on the courts of the Queen’s Club in London for most of its lifetime. Finishing just one week before the start of Wimbledon, this prestigious competition has had several winners who have gone on to complete the double, winning both tournaments.
Players like Andy Murray, John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker and Rafael Nadal are among these elite. Andy Murray holds the current record for the most singles wins of the AEGON Championships. The only other player to match Andy on the number titles in this competition is John McEnroe, but one of his was for winning the doubles tournament.
