British number one Andy Murray will target a third Aegon Championships title at Queen's Club in June.
After lifting the trophy
without dropping a set three years ago,
Murray won again in spectacular fashion in 2011, winning a thrilling, rain-delayed final against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
The last British player to win three was FG Lowe, who lifted the trophy for a third and final time in 1925.
“It's a great tournament, so it's the perfect preparation for Wimbledon”
"It's a big deal and I'd love to win it again this year," Murray said.
Murray overwhelmed American Andy Roddick 6-3 6-1 in the semi-finals last year, and then came back from a set down to
defeat Tsonga 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 in the final.
"I'm excited to be going back to Queen's Club. It's a great tournament and the grass courts are as good as anywhere in the world, so it's the perfect preparation for Wimbledon," the Scotsman added.
"There's always a great atmosphere and having won the trophy twice previously, I have nothing but good memories."
Murray, whose coach Ivan Lendl won at Queen's in 1989 and 1990, has started the year impressively.
He won the
Brisbane Open title
in the opening week of the year, and then reached the
semi-finals of the Australian Open in Melbourne,
losing a five-set encounter against eventual champion Novak Djokovic.
Wimbledon will follow a week after Queen's, and then the Olympic tennis event will also take place on grass at the All England Club from 28 July.
BBC Sport will have comprehensive coverage from Queen's on BBC TV, radio and online from 11-17 June
