Aegon Open tournament schedule



Who is playing WTA Nottingham?


World No. 8 Johanna Konta will be the leading contender to crown the 2017 Aegon Open in Nottingham as the British star looks to kick off the grass season with a bang.

After a triumphant start to 2017, which included winning titles in Miami and Sydney, along with making the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, Konta was very quiet during the clay season, failing to win back-to-back matches as she still finds her feet on the surface.

But a transition to grass offers Konta the opportunity to return to the winners circle - and she will be hoping to immediately stake her claim as one of the leading contenders for Wimbledon. But first and foremost Konta will be hoping to improve on last year’s showing in Nottingham, where she lost in the second round to Saisai Zheng.

The only other top 20 player in the 2017 Aegon Open field is Anastasija Sevastova - the Latvian who enjoyed a solid clay season, highlighted by a semi-final run at the Mutua Madrid Open, along with quarter-final finishes at Charleston and Stuttgart and a third round exit at the French Open.

Alison Riske, the 2016 Nottingham runner-up to Karolina Pliskova, also returns for another shot at Aegon Open glory, and the big-hitting American has to be counted among the leading contenders, with her powerful and flat game taylor-made for grass.

Other notable names to look out for in the draw include Lauren Davis, Yulia Putintseva, Lucie Safarova and Shelby Rogers, along with rising youngsters Naomi Osaka, Oceane Dodin and Ash Barty.

About the Aegon Open


The Aegon Open is held the week after the French Open in early June and is a popular destination for top women’s players looking to make the transition from clay to grass and get their grass-court games in top working order ahead of the Premier events in Birmingham and Eastbourne and, of course, the most prestigious tournament of the entire season at Wimbledon.

The Aegon Open Nottingham kicks off the British grass-court season and its roots (no pun intended) date back to 1971, when for three years the city hosted  a WTA Tour event which attracted the world’s best: Billie Jean King won back-to-back titles in 1972-3, defeating Evonne Goolagong Crawley and Virginie Wade in respective finals.

The tournament was discontinued in 1974 and it wasn’t until 2011 that women’s tennis would return to Nottingham in the form of an ITF event. But the next phase of the Aegon Open Nottingham didn’t come to pass until 2015, when tennis authorities reshuffled the calendar to add an extra week of grass-court tennis in between the French Open and Wimbledon. The Aegon Open Nottingham came into being, with a women’s event held the week after Roland Garros and a men’s event held a fortnight afterwards, in the week before Wimbledon, with top-level tennis in Nottingham therefore bracketing the grass-court season.

The Aegon Open Nottingham is an International-level WTA Tour event which welcomes a 32-player draw competing for $43,000 in prize money and 280 ranking points offered to the winner, with the runner-up receiving $21,400 and 180 in ranking points. Overall, the Aegon Open offers $226,750 in prize money to its competitors in the singles and doubles draw.

The winner also receives the Elena Baltacha Trophy, named for the former British no. 1 Elena Baltacha who tragically died from cancer in May 2014. Baltacha won the ITF event held at the Nottingham Tennis Centre twice – the second time less than a year before her death.

The inaugural Aegon Open Nottingham in 2015 welcomed a top-flight field led by 2012 Wimbledon runner-up and grass-court doyenne Agnieszka Radwanska, but it was 17-year-old Ana Konjuh who broke through to claim her first WTA Tour title, defeating the tricky Niculescu in the final and lifting the Elena Baltacha Trophy. In 2016 it was Karolina Pliskova’s turn to win a maiden grass court title, defeating Alison Riske 7-6(8) 7-5 to claim the silverware.
