 Andy Murray
The World No. 1 is back on home turf (literally) after a run to the Roland Garros semi-final that no-one could have predicted at the start of the clay court season. After a shock exit before the second week of the Australian Open, his US hard court spring was a washout, with an opening exit in Indian Wells, and withdrawing from Miami with an elbow injury.
With some high focused withdrawals from the tournament, including Juan Martin Del Potro and most notable Rafael Nadal, you would think that the draw would open up for Murray, but not necessarily. Most likely he will face former champion Sam Querrey and former finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on his ways to the quarter-finals, and another former champion Marin Cilic in the semi-finals.
 Stan Wawrinka
After that bruising defeat in the World Tour finals, Wawrinka arrives to look for form to help him maybe achieve a rare career Slam as the Swiss is one Wimbledon final away from such an achievement. But it looked like a very subdued Wawrinka who took to the court in Paris.
He has reached as far as the semi-finals but in recent years his adjustment from the clay to the grass has been a little bumpy with early exits in the last two years. He starts against Feliciano Lopez who has already reached the finals of Stuttgart. We could see an early shock here.
 Milos Raonic
Last year’s finalist is also looking for a steady run here after a year marred with more injury, but after his exit from the French Open in the fourth round, he makes his start on the grass here. Hopefully the time between the French Open and Queen’s has allowed him to make the transition injury free.
He has a decent draw to the quarter-finals where he is slated to meet former champion Grigor Dimitrov, but like Wawrinka, the last two years have been a struggle for Dimitrov. With a renewed focus after teaming up with Dani Vallverdu, maybe we could see a challenge here.
 Marin Cilic
Another former champion, Cilic has been fairly steady this year, often flying under the radar but not quite making the mark except for the Istanbul title. This is a good surface for the Croatian although he starts against big server John Isner and has Nick Kyrgios at the other end of the bracket who will also fancy his chances on the surface.
The Aegon Championships takes place between 19-25 June.
