Rothesay Open Nottingham 2022: Jabeur, Kenin and Pegula headline entry list
• 3 MINUTE READ
The entry list for this year’s Rothesay Open Nottingham has been released, with 2022 Mutua Madrid Open winner and world No.7 Ons Jabeur making her return to British grass courts after winning the Birmingham Classic last year.
That victory ensured she became the first Arab woman to capture a WTA title and her win at the Mutua Madrid Open last Sunday ensured the 27-year-old became the first African woman to win a WTA 1000 event.
Jabeur, is currently ranked at No.7 in the WTA rankings thanks to a solid start to the year that has also included a run to the final of the WTA 500 event in Charleston, USA.
Two former Nottingham Open champions are also set to return to the tournament this summer, with France’s 2019 winner Caroline Garcia joined by Croatia’s 2015 victor Ana Konjuh in the draw.
Tickets are still available for the Rothesay Nottingham Open and all of our grass court summer events here:
Grand Slam winner Sofia Kenin will be part of a strong field in Nottingham, with the 23-year-old keen to get back to her best form after winning the 2020 Australian Open and reaching the final of the French Open late that year as she rose to No.4 in the WTA rankings. Injury problems have hampered her progress since, but Kenin will be eager to shine on British grass courts this summer.
Meanwhile, America’s Jessica Pegula, currently at a career-high ranking of No.11, is a confirmed entry, with Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic also set to play in Nottingham after her run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals last year.
In addition to the WTA tournament, there will be an ATP Challenger Tour event on the Nottingham grass, with entry lists for that event set to be confirmed soon.
“It will be exciting to continue the British grass court season in Nottingham with a high-quality field of players for the WTA 250 event," said Tournament Director, Rebecca James.
"Having a Grand Slam champion on our entry list in Sofia Kenin highlights the appeal of our tournament and 2022 Madrid Open winner Ons Jabeur will be a star attraction for fans. After two years of challenges due to Covid-19, we very much look forward to opening our doors to full capacity crowds once again and it will be great to welcome the players to an event that is so important to the thriving sporting community in Nottingham and the surrounding area.”
