Monfils and Del Potro to star at Boodles

Gael-MonfilsJuan Martin Del Potro and Gael Monfils will lead an all-star field for The Boodles 2012 tennis tournament at Stoke Park in June.

Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion, and flamboyant Frenchman Monfils head up a list of players which is set to include top 20 stars Stanislas Wawrinka, Alexander Dolgopolov and Richard Gasquet.

More top players will be added to the stellar field before the tournament, with some of the biggest names in the sport also expected to appear in one-off matches during the week.

Last year, World No.1 Novak Djokovic and No.4 Andy Murray both put the finishing touches to their Wimbledon preparations by playing at The Boodles.

Del Potro said of the event: "I'm looking forward to playing at The Boodles this year. It's nice to play somewhere where the crowd is very close and the tennis is fun but serious at the same time. All the guys want to get time playing on grass ahead of Wimbledon, especially when you can play against really good players in a good atmosphere."

The event takes place at the historic Stoke Park, Stoke Poges from June 19-23.
