Johanna Konta leads stellar entry list for Viking Open Nottingham.

Also set to compete in Nottingham are former Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson and Britain’s Liam Broady.

This is in addition to the news that Ten-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams heads a strong entry list for this year’s Nottingham Open – the first of the returning LTA summer grass court events.

Ten-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams heads a strong entry list for this year’s Nottingham Open – the first of the returning LTA summer grass court events.

Williams is joined by 2017 champion Donna Vekic, two-time finalist Johanna Konta and British No.2 Heather Watson on the entry list for the WTA 250 level tournament that takes place 5-13 June at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.

Konta and Vekic are two of 13 players in the WTA Top 50 to have entered the competition – a list that also includes Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybakina, American Alison Riske and Swiss world No.11 Belinda Bencic.

This year, the LTA has increased the singles main draw to 48, providing 16 additional main draw playing opportunities. Up to five wildcards are also available and will be announced in the coming weeks.

Williams, a five-time Wimbledon champion, will be playing the tournament for the first time. She reached the quarter final of the LTA’s Birmingham Classic event in 2019, losing out to eventual champion Ashleigh Barty. She also partnered Britain’s Harriet Dart in the doubles competition.

This will be Konta’s fifth appearance at the Nottingham Open and she will be hoping to go one better than runner-up finishes in both 2017 and 2018. Watson will also be playing the tournament for the fifth time.

This year’s tournament is expected to operate at approximately 25% supporter capacity due to Government rules on social distancing and restrictions on the number of supporters at sporting events. The LTA has made free tickets available to key workers for each day of the tournament. These will be provided to contacts at key worker organisations local to the Nottingham Open.

Entries for the concurrent ATP Challenger 125 event at the Nottingham Open will be announced in due course.

LTA announces a Summer of Tennis for 2021

The LTA has announced its calendar of summer tournaments for 2021, with a commitment to stage as much live competitive tennis this summer as is possible, despite the limitations caused by COVID-19.

These events are planned to be held in their traditional weeks, beginning with the Nottingham Open WTA 250 on 5 June at the Nottingham Tennis Centre. The Nottingham Open ATP Challenger 125 (Mens) event will take place from 6-13 June, whilst the Nottingham Open WTA (Ladies) 250 main draw singles will be increased to 48, providing 16 additional main draw playing opportunities.

Whilst it remains too early to say what level of attendance will be possible, the LTA is planning for a number of scenarios and remains cautiously optimistic that fans will be able to be present at all its summer events this year.

The LTA is working closely with the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport, The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), WTA, ATP, ITF, Sports Ground Safety Authority, other NGBs, host venues and numerous partners and suppliers in order to develop its planning for events that provide a safe environment for players, officials, volunteers, and spectators. The national governing body’s intention is for the events to take place even if they are behind closed doors. 

The Nature Valley Open is a combined women's and men's tennis tournament of WTA International level and ATP Challenger level. The event attracts tennis stars from around the world to compete for the grass court crown.
