Edgbaston Priory Club, Birmingham: 9th - 15th June 2014
2013 Aegon Classic winner Daniela Hantuchova
The Aegon Classic is a WTA Premier tennis event on the women's tour held at the Edgbaston Priory Club in Birmingham, Great Britain. The 2013 tournament was the 33rd anniversary of the event.
2014 is the first year the Aegon Classic will be held as a WTA Premier level tournament. This means a substantial increase in prize money and WTA ranking points, attracting some of the world's best players. The tournament is now in equal 10th position on the WTA tour (outside of the four Grand Slams and WTA Championships).
Held at EPC since 1982, the tournament is played on grass courts and is a WTA International event seen by some as a sister tournament to the Aegon Championships, on the ATP Tour, which is held at The Queen's Club, London.
The early years at the Edgbaston Priory Club were dominated by the Americans with 13 of the first 15 champions coming from the United States. In more recent years the tournament has been dominated by players from Eastern Europe with winners coming from Slovakia, Ukraine, Serbia and Russia with Maria Sharapova being one of the most well known recent champions.
