Five-time Wimbledon singles champion Venus Williams heads an impressive array of talent set to compete at this year’s Nottingham Open.

British pair Johanna Konta and Heather Watson will also be in action at the event which takes place from 5-13 June at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.

They are among 13 players ranked in the world’s top 50 who have entered.

Tournament director Rebecca James said the high-quality field will help the grass-court season “start with a bang”.

She added: “To have such big names on the entry list for the WTA event just adds to that excitement.

“Even though all our events will look different this year, we are delighted to be bringing world-class tennis back to Nottingham.

The Nottingham Open is a key warm-up event for Wimbledon, which begins on 28 June.
