British No.1 Katie Boulter comes into Eastbourne in brilliant form having won her second straight title at the Rothesay Open Nottingham after beating 2016 champion Karolina Pliskova in the final. Boulter has climbed to a career-high ranking of world No.30 this season and captured the biggest title of her career in San Diego.

Wild card Emma Raducanu will certainly be one to watch in Eastbourne. The 21-year-old Brit made her grass court comeback in Nottingham last week where she reached her first WTA semi-final on the surface.

On her return from injury, the young Brit was instrumental in Great Britain’s win over France at the Billie Jean King Cup this year – winning both her rubbers to see the Brits into the Finals.

Jack Draper will lead the British challenge in the men’s draw. The 22-year-old recently became the new British No.1 after winning his first ATP title in Stuttgart.

This year will also see men's, women's and quad wheelchair draws, with British stars Alfie Hewett, Gordon Reid, Lucy Shuker, Andy Lapthorne and more set to star.

In doubles, Jo Durie made the final twice in 1983 with fellow Brit Anne Hobbs, and in 1984 with Ann Kiyomura but on both occasions lost to US duo Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver on their run of six straight titles.

Dom Inglot went on to win it in 2014 with Treat Huey, beating Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares in the final. Lastly in 2019 Jonny O’Mara and Luke Bambridge overcame brother Neal and Ken Skupski 7-5, 6-4 in the final.
