With the clay court season done and dusted, attention now turns to preparing for Wimbledon and what better place to start than the iconic Queen’s Club. Home to 28 pristine grass courts, it has played host to this tournament since 1890 and is seen as the ideal preparation for the third Grand Slam of the year. 

It certainly proved to be the case for Carlos Alcaraz who one year ago won his first grass-court title at the cinch Championships before going on to triumph at Wimbledon. The newly-crowned French Open champion will be out to defend his title but will face a stern challenge as there is a strong field competing in West London. 

2023 runner-up Alex de Minaur will be hoping to go one further this year and add to his collection of eight ATP titles, while big-hitting Americans Taylor Fritz and Ben Shelton will be expected to go deep in the tournament. Other names to look out for include Denmark’s Holger Rune and America’s Frances Tiafoe, as well as home hopes Cam Norrie, Jack Draper and two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. 

With a strong field and a prestigious title up for grabs, it should be a fascinating tournament. So check out all of the TV and streaming details below to find out how to watch the 2024 cinch Championships from anywhere.
