He is the Spanish tennis player who won the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club, London in June 2017. Facing Marin Cilic in the final, it was a closely contested match and every spectator around the centre court experienced their adrenalin pumping, pulse racing and emotions soaring and sinking with each point, game and set that comprised the final.
Lopez made the final at Queen’s Club in 2014 and fought hard in the final against Grigor Dimitrov, losing in 3 sets, all of which went to tie breaks. In 2017, his match with Marin Cilic also featured 3 sets, 2 with tie breaks, the 3rd set being won at 10-8 on a nail-biting tie break.
You can be confident that his final matches go right to the proverbial wire; could he produce another victory at Queen’s in 2018?

The Queen’s Club Championships (formerly the Aegon Championships) are being held between the 18th and 24th June 2018.
The prestigious club, the first multi-sports centre in the world, was created in 1886 and named in honour of its patron, Queen Victoria. The tennis tournament we have grown to love once hosted a ladies’ competition, but this ceased in the 1970’s.
Today, the men’s singles and doubles competitions catch the headlines, not only because it’s a home event but thanks to the dominance of Sir Andy Murray, who has won the singles a record breaking 5 times and his brother Jamie who, with Bruno Soares, has also won titles here in the doubles.
Capacity was increased in 2017 to accommodate the ever-rising number of spectators who want to see the icons of tennis play on grass after the clay court season, and in the run up to Wimbledon. It’s also a favourite with the players; it has frequently been voted the best ATP 500 Tour tournament of the year.
