Roddick out to win third Queen's title

Australia's world No.2 Lleyton Hewitt will be Andy Roddick's main threat as the big serving American goes in search of his third straight Queen's Club tournament title later this year.

Roddick will again use the June 6-12 tournament as his final warm-up before Wimbledon, but will face stiff opposition from three-time winner Hewitt and British duo Tim Henman and Briton Greg Rusedski. Only Hewitt, John McEnroe and Boris Becker have won the tournament at least three times.

Roddick defeated French player Sebastien Grosjean in the last two finals.

"I look forward to going back to defend my title," Roddick said.

"I always enjoy going to such a special place to play on the grass."

Hewitt defeated Roddick in three sets last week in the semifinals of the Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells, California.

Hewitt won at Queen's in 2000, 2001 and 2002, and says the grass at the west London club is better than the green at tennis' most famous venue.

"It's my opinion that their's is the best grass," he said. "It's always nice to go back to a place where you've won a few titles and have had success."
