LONDON (Reuters) - Former world number one Andy Roddick will try to win a record fifth title at Queen’s Club in June, tournament organizers announced on Wednesday.

The American, one of seven men to have won the Wimbledon warm-up event four times, will be joined in the draw for the June 7-13 tournament by 2008 Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal and U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro.

“I love the whole month in London,” world number eight Roddick, who lost to Roger Federer in last year’s Wimbledon final, said in a news release. “I’ve had a lot of success at the Queen’s Club and I still say it’s the best grass court in the world.”
