Eastbourne tennis star, Johanna Konta, is to play at the Aegon Classic Birmingham.
The British Number 1 will try and better her second round result from last year where she lost a tight three setter to eventual finalist Karolina Pliskova.
“I’m thrilled to be coming back to Birmingham. I played well there last year and any time you can play on grass, in front of your home crowd, it’s always something special”, said Konta.
“It’s grown into a fantastic event and I really like Birmingham. I know when the Davis Cup boys played there the city really got behind them. I’m sure it’s going to be the same at the Aegon Classic.”
