Week 24 -WTA International ($225k) Nottingham, Grass


https://www.lta.org.uk/major-events/aegon-open-nottingham/aegon-open-nottingham-wta-entry-list/

 

Jo Konta clearly the top ranked player in the list, no other Brits in direct entries, guess one or two will get wild cards?

WTA Nottingham Entry List


Hev is guaranteed one, with Naomi playing in Manchester I suspect the other two to go to Tara and Laura unless a big name comes in late on.

 Do you know if there are any listings of players entered into any of the AEGON Trophy Series events, mens or womens? Not much info on the LTA site other than the event dates and last seasons results etc. I live near Ilkley so had toyed with going along at some stage during the week

Theres unlikely to much info until the entry lists are released (3 weeks time for Ilkey). But you should definately go!

If the weather obliges, Ilkley's a great venue, courts meh, but everything else 1st class.

Ilkley is a great place but only if it's sunny, which it often isn't! Tickets felt expensive when I looked last year for a fairly low level event, with a distinct possibility of rain every day!

Here is the entry list for Nottingham WTA this year



Jo and Heather definitely confirmed, Jo should hope to win this?

Although rankings wise a weakish field at this stage, there are some very good grass court players in there, around a dozen that easily beat Jo on their day especially on current form. I assume Naomi is just outside the entry list as well and may yet sneak in.

 Probably more likely to play the Manchester ITF that week. She did last year with a very similar ranking.

 Ah of course was forgetting about that, yes she will be at Manchester which is more or less her home tournament and she is usually the poster girl to promote the tournament as such.

She is the poster girl and "excited" to be so.

The interesting conundrum is who will accept the other wildcard and qualifying wildcards and who will elect to play Manchester.
Freya is almost certain to play Nottingham probably as a QWC

Katie, Katie, Katy and Gaby all played Manchester last year with Naomi, whilst Laura played Nottingham with Tara.
I'm pretty sure Beth Grey will play Manchester qualifiers and get a doubles WC.
Money v points debate

Grass court season on the womens side this year a lot more exciting for potential points and profile whereas on the mens side pretty depressing at the moment.
