It’s time for the annual Queen’s Club tennis tournament and we’re praying for two things – firstly that the weather cheers up a bit, and second that Andy Murray’s hip holds out. It’s the big comeback for the former Wimbledon champ and world number 1 – at a tournament he’s won a record five times – which could set him up nicely for doubles at SW19 right after. See how Andy and the rest get on with a Queen’s Club tennis live stream.
Founded back in 1890, this 129-year-old tournament is held in West Kensington and is part of the ATP World Tour 500 series – it’s also one of the oldest tennis tournaments on the planet. It’s also where a world’s fastest serve record was set by Andy Roddick in 2004 with a smashing 153 mph mega swing.
The 2018 winner Marin Cilic defeated Novak Djokovic, both of whom will be returning this year as will 2017 winner Feliciano Lopez. All that should make for great viewing and Murray says of his return: “Once you get back on a match court, that’s when you can really test yourself. I’d imagine after here I’d get a better idea of where I’m at.”
While centre court can only hold 9,000 people, you don’t need to miss out. So if you want to catch all the action live, read on to find out the best way you can live stream Queen’s Club tennis from wherever you are. The ace news (sorry) is that it’s absolutely free to watch if you’re in the UK.
