Queen's Club Champion Tommy Paul Withdraws From Eastbourne International

Queen's Club Champion Tommy Paul Withdraws From Eastbourne International

Tommy Paul won't play at the 2024 Eastbourne International after going all the way at the Cinch Championships the week before.

The American spent a week in London, and he won't be traveling south to the coast of England. The Eastbourne International entry list has featured Paul for weeks, and the American actually appeared in the draw a few days ago, but he won't be playing at the ATP 250 event.

It comes as a consequence of a long and eventful week in London, during which he went all the way to win the Cinch Championships. Paul was tremendous the entire week, including in the final, to add his name to the legendary list of Queen's Club champions, and doing that took some wind out of him.

That's why he will skip this upcoming week to rest up and recover for the upcoming Wimbledon. There is no need for Paul to play because he has plenty of playing time ahead of Wimbledon.

The American is looking very confident in his game, and the sensible thing is to remain in London and simply shift focus to Wimbledon and practice on those courts.

The win is a huge boost for Paul, who will look dangerous to make the second week at Wimbledon, especially now that he's the top-ranked American. It's been a long time coming, and after an impressive year of play, Paul finally emerged on top.

His style works superbly well on grass, with a powerful serve and a lot of power from both the forehand and backhand sides. Few players can match his shot-making when he's really feeling it, and right now, he's feeling it.

The Eastbourne International will still go on, even without the American, who was replaced in the draw by lucky loser Charles Broom, who will be cheered on by the home crowd.
