Former Champions join British star Dan Evans in Aegon Open Nottingham field

Tennis

Two former Nottingham champions will return to the grass of their pre-Wimbledon triumphs to join British Davis Cup star Dan Evans at the Aegon Open in June.

Lithuania’s Ricardas Berankis and Dudi Sela of Israel, who collected titles at the Nottingham Tennis Centre in 2010 and 2011 respectively, will be looking to add to their previous East Midlands hauls when they line up for the $150 ATP Challenger Tour event, which runs between the 10th and 18th of June.

Tickets for the Aegon Open Nottingham are on sale now at https://www.lta.org.uk/major-events/2017-tickets

The Aegon Open Nottingham field includes a list of players with proven grass-court records, with Sergiy Stakhovsky picking up one of his four ATP World Tour crowns on the surface, while Japan’s Go Soeda lost out to Berankis in the 2011 Aegon Trophy final and Kenny De Schepper reached the semi-finals of the same tournament 12 months later.

Paul Hutchins, the Aegon Open Nottingham tournament director, said: “It is great to have a number of players with a title-winning track record returning for this year’s event.

“Dudi Sela and Ricardas Berankis are just two players who spectators at the Nottingham Tennis Centre will know well and will be looking forward to seeing again, with Dan Evans the pick of the familiar faces who have challenged for glory in the city in the past.”

This year’s Aegon Open Nottingham will be an historic event for the city, as it is the first time in 44 years that ATP event has been combined with a WTA tournament.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all.
