London, England

Juan Martin Del Potro feels ready to break through and win his first title on grass after confirming that he will be part of the field at the AEGON Championships, 11-17 June.

Del Potro, who won the US Open in spectacular fashion in 2009 before suffering a debilitating wrist injury which kept him out for a year, is determined to show his ability when he arrives at The Queen’s Club, and then take it on to The Championships, Wimbledon.

"I like the surface, I’m not a grass-court specialist, but I’m improving," said Del Potro. "The AEGON Championships at Queen’s is an amazing tournament, very nice to come to, to play, to train and I will be there for sure trying to win my first title on grass. I think that if I play my best tennis I have a chance to win a Grand Slam on grass but it will be very difficult."

Currently ranked No.9 in the world, Del Potro is the third Top 10 player to join the field after defending champion Andy Murray and last year’s runner-up Jo Wilfried Tsonga both signed up.
