Defending champion Marin Cilic will play in the AEGON Tennis Championships in June, but last year's beaten finalist David Nalbandian won't.

Marin Cilic has confirmed that he will participate in the AEGON Tennis Championships in June.

The Croatian won the tournament last year and will be looking to successfully defend his title at The Queen's Club.

Last year's beaten finalist David Nalbandian will not feature in the tournament, but four-time winner Lleyton Hewitt and US Open champion Andy Murray will.

"We have a strong sense of our history and celebrate our past champions at the AEGON Championships so it's great to see Marin Cilic, Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Querrey returning," ESPN quotes tournament director Chris Kermode as saying.

"At the same time, it's particularly exciting to see young stars coming through. We all remember how a 17-year-old Boris Becker won the first title of his career at The Queen's Club in 1985, and then went on to win Wimbledon two weeks later, and we can't wait to see [Grigor] Dimitrov and [Bernard] Tomic in action this year."

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Juan Martin del Potro will also fight for the title this year.
