We are excited to announce that 2012 Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska has entered into the Aegon Open Nottingham.
The Polish star joins players such as British No.1 Heather Watson, 2013 Aegon Classic Birmingham winner Daniela Hantuchova and Grand Slam winner Francesca Schiavone at the Nottingham Tennis Centre in June.
Radwanska has enjoyed successful results on the British grass courts in the past and lifted the Eastbourne International trophy in 2008 when she beat Nadia Petrova.
A former world No.2, Radwanska announced herself as one of the professional circuits most high profile players when her entertaining style of play saw her reach the Wimbledon final before falling to Serena Williams in a three-set match.
Radwanska said: “I am excited to be making my debut in Nottingham this year and am really looking forward to the event.
“My best results in my career have come on grass in Great Britain and I remember very fondly winning Eastbourne seven years ago and reaching the Wimbledon final in 2012. It is very special to be a part of this brand new tournament in its first year and hopefully this will be exactly the preparation I need going into Wimbledon.”
