Tomas Berdych lost in the final of the Dubai Championships to Novak Djokovic.

Tomas Berdych will return to Queen's Club for the first time in eight years to tune up for Wimbledon.

Organizers say the sixth-ranked Czech has entered the grass-court tournament, which will be played June 10-16.

Berdych's only previous appearance at Queen's was in 2005 when he was 19 years old. He was the runner-up to Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2010.

Berdych says "it could be a good advantage to be in London to get used to the conditions and to those great courts and I think this is exactly what I need before Wimbledon."
