Dan Cox, Aidan McHugh and M25 Loughborough runner-up George Loffhagen are all competing in the men’s draw this week. Last week’s ITF M25 Sheffield Champion Daniel Little has been awarded a main draw wild card.
Harmony Tan, who famously defeated Serena Williams in the first round of Wimbledon last year is seeded second in the main draw below world No.122 Marina Bassols Ribera of Spain.
James Davis, David Quayle and Ewan Moore all enjoyed impressive final round qualifying victories against higher seeds to book a spot in the main draw. On the women’s side, Danielle Daley and Katy Dunne progressed from qualifying to the main draw.
LTA Tournament Director Sarah Wooding said: “We are delighted to be returning to Sunderland Tennis Centre for the women's $60k and men's $25k GB Pro-Series Tournament. I believe this is the highest prize money level women's event we have ever staged in Sunderland and the entry level standard for both tournaments is high.
"There will be lots of British interest as well as highly ranked players from around the world, many of whom have played at Grand Slam level. This is a fantastic opportunity for the people of Sunderland and the surrounding area to see top class tennis on their doorstep - viewing is available from the balcony and cafe area and admission is free.”
