It's the traditional tune-up for Wimbledon on the ATP Tour and the beginning of the grass-court season in tennis—the AEGON Championships are upon us, folks.
While the event will be devoid of stars like Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer (who is off to the Gerry Weber Open in Germany), there will be plenty of players to keep an eye on, including Andy Murray, who makes his return after missing the French Open.
If you've already got the Wimbledon itch, the best way to scratch it is the AEGON Championships this week. Let's take a closer look at this event, including the schedule, draw and a few players to keep an eye one.

Players To Watch
After skipping the French Open with a back injury, Murray will return in this Wimbledon tune-up as the top overall seed. While a little rust is to be expected, Murray—a two-time winner at the event—will still come in as the favorite.
Tomas Berdych comes in as the No. 2 seed and will be looking to win his first tournament of the year and erase a disappointing first-round loss at the French Open. He'll be on the same side of the bracket as Juan Martin del Potro, who will be looking to earn his second title of the year.
The man to watch out for is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who is fresh off a solid run at the French Open, reaching the semifinals after beating Roger Federer in the quarters. A potential semifinal between he and Andy Murray is the match everyone is hoping to see at this tournament.
Other top contenders include Marin Cilic, Sam Querrey and Alexandr Dolgopolov.

I'm sticking with Tsonga in this one after his impressive showing at the French Open. Yes, it was a major disappointment that he didn't reach the final, but knocking off Federer is no small feat.
With Murray likely to be at less than his top form and wins over Berdych and Del Potro in his last meetings with the players, I like Tsonga to prevail at The Queen's Club.
