Starting from the 19th of June up until the 25th of June, the Queen’s Club Championships will be held just outside London. This is the most popular tournament that serves the players as a preparation for Wimbledon. Thirty-two of the best tennis players in the world will participate in the competition. As usual, the bracket is determined using the seeding system, which does not allow some of the top eight players in the tournament to collide earlier than the quarterfinals.

Queen’s Club Championships Seeds

Three of the top 10 players in the rankings will play at the Queen’s Club Championship in the upcoming week, and world No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz tops the Cinch Championships Seeds. In the following lines, we will keep track of the performance of the eight seeded players at the Queen’s Club Championships.

1. Carlos Alcaraz

After a difficult start and avoiding a huge upset against Arthur Rindernech, Alcaraz was on top of his game in the next two matches. Jiri Lehecka was not on the level to challenge the World No. 2 but Grigor Dimitrov made a couple of breaks in the second set to make things interesting. Alcaraz didn’t stop in the semifinals playing furiously and defeating Sebastian Korda in straight sets. The Spaniard leads 1-0 in the head to head matches against Alex de Minaur who is his opponent in the final match.

  • Semifinal: Win vs Korda 6-3, 6-4
  • Quarterfinal: Win vs Dimitrov 6-4, 6-4
  • Round of 16: Win vs Lehecka 6-2, 6-3
  • First round: Win vs Rindernech 4-6, 7-5, 7-6

2. Holger Rune

Rune is one of the best players of the next generation but his run at the Queen’s Club was cut short in the semifinals to Alex De Minaur. The opening round of the tournament saw Rune getting his first career win on grass courts. After losing all three matches on this surface last season, the World No. 6 defeated Maxime Cressy by 7-6, 7-6. He did not stop there as he had no problems with the home hope Ryan Peniston and was also confident in the last win over Lorenzo Musseti.

  • Semifinal: Loss vs De Minaur 6-3, 7-6
  • Quarterfinal: Win vs Musetti 6-4, 7-5
  • Round of 16: Win vs Peniston 6-3, 6-4
  • First round: Win vs Cressy 7-6, 7-6

3. Taylor Fritz

The best ranked American player is already out after losing 6-4, 7-6 to Adrian Mannarino in the round of 16 match. Previously he had a routine 7-5, 6-4 win over Bernabe Zapata Miralles in the opening round.

  • Round of 16: Loss vs Mannarino 6-4, 7-6
  • First round: Win vs Zapata Miralles 7-5, 6-4

4. Frances Tiafoe

After winning the second title this season, Tiafoe had no time to prepare for this tournament but managed to win quite easily in the opening round. Tiafoe defeated Botic Van Den Zandenschulp by 6-2, 6-4 but then failed to the fellow American Sebastian Korda in the round of 16 match by 7-6, 6-3.

  • Round of 16: Loss to Korda 7-6, 6-3
  • First round: Win vs Van Den Zandeschulp 6-2, 6-4

5. Cameron Norrie

The highest-ranked British player had no real chance in the quarterfinal against Sebastian Korda. The American made an early break in the opening set and allowed only one point in the second set tie break. The previous wins over Jordan Thompson and Miomir Kecmanovic was a good start of the grass season and the British fans hope to see Norrie on top of his game next week at Wimbledon.

  • Quarterfinal: Loss to Korda 4-6, 6-7
  • Round of 16: Win vs Thompson 4-6, 6-3, 6-2
  • First round: Win vs Kecmanovic 6-4, 7-6

6. Lorenzo Musseti

Musseti is not very keen on playing on grass court and he had no real chance in the semifinal match against Holger Rune. The score looks pretty tight but Musetti’s game fell apart when he needed to be on his top level. In the previous rounds, Musetti defeated Ben Shelton and Jan Choinski.

  • Quarterfinals: Loss to Rune 4-6, 5-7
  • Round of 16: Win vs Ben Shelton 6-4, 4-6, 6-4
  • First round: Win vs Choinski 6-4, 6-2

7. Alex de Minaur

De Minaur has made it to the finals second time this season after winning in Acapulco. He is coming off an impressive 2-0 win over world No. 6 Holger Rune in the semis. The highest ranked Australian had an excellent start of the tournament defeating the five-time Queen’s Club Championships winner Andy Murray. In the second round, again he lost only four games in the entire match against Diego Schwartzman. The first real challenge came in the quarterfinals but the 24-year-old prevailed in the match against the French veteran Adrian Mannarino.

  • Semifinal: Win vs Rune 6-3, 7-6
  • Quarterfinal: Win vs Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 4-6, 6-4
  • Round of 16: Win vs Schwartzman 6-2, 6-2
  • First round: Win vs Murray 6-3, 6-1

8. Francisco Cerundolo

Cerundolo is out after a round of 16 loss to the World No. 26, Grigor Dimitrov. In the opening round, the Argentinian had a tough 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 win over Tommy Paul.

  • Round of 16: Loss vs Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 7-5
  • First round: Win vs Paul 7-6, 4-6, 6-4
