Joining her will be British No.2, Heather Watson and Harriet Dart - who broke into the WTA top 100 for the first time this year.

Onto the men’s main draw where Great Britain boasts quite the selection, with six countrymen announced in the line-up as former champion Dan Evans returns alongside fellow Brits, Liam Broady, Jay Clarke and Ryan Peniston.

This year's wild cards include Paul Jubb, who won his first ATP Challenger event earlier this year, and Alastair Gray, who has impressed with a couple of ITF singles titles in 2022.
