"I'm really happy to have won this title. When I arrived at the beginning of the week and saw the names of all the champions in history, I told myself that I wanted to be part of that group. I think I played at a high level and took advantage of the great confidence in myself. This is the best way to go to Wimbledon."  

Tommy Paul won his third career title at Queen's Club Championships, the first ever on grass; the most important trophy for the American, who is going through a moment of great growth. As a result of the result obtained in London, beating Lorenzo Musetti in the final, Tommy also achieved his best ranking, reaching up to 12th position. There isn't much left to the goal of reaching the top 10, a result that every tennis player dreams of at the beginning of their career. Wimbledon could help him in this sense, if it were to confirm the good things he has done in recent times. Paul's best result on the courts of the All England Lawn Tennis Club is the round of 32, in 2022.

Can he really dream to win Wimbledon? With Djokovic's physical state, the main favorite on the London lawns will be Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner. Carlitos was eliminated at the Queen's, where he was defending champion. Sinner won Halle, but in a fortnight played at the best of 5 sets, it can happens everything and yes, Tommy could have some chances to get into the best of the Wimbledon Championships, this season.

Musetti was unable to keep up with the American tennis player, who played great tennis throughout the week. The Italian boy recognized his opponent's superiority with great sportsmanship.

"It was one of the best weeks of my career. Congratulations to Tommy, he deserved to win today, it was very difficult to keep up with him. I saved face a bit with the counter-break at the end of the second set. Congratulations also to Brad Stine and his entire team, you are doing an extraordinary job. Soon you will be in the top 10," he explained.
