Houston:

World number two Novak Djokovic confirmed on Thursday he will play at this year's Queen's tournament, the warm-up event before Wimbledon.

The Serbian, who has yet to win a grass court title, has been added to a field which already includes Rafael Nadal, Juan Martin Del Potro and Andy Roddick for the event which gets under way on June 7.

Djokovic, the 2008 runner-up, said: "It would mean a lot to me if I could go one step further than in 2008 and win the AEGON Championships at Queen's, and then to do well at Wimbledon.

"The grass court season is unique and it is very exciting to play at Queen's because the atmosphere is fantastic and there is so much tradition for tennis in England."
