AEGON International Tennis at Devonshire Park
Enjoy world class tennis action from top men and women of the WTA and ATP tours, in this exciting pre-Wimbledon tournament at Eastbourne's Devonshire Park.
Regularly attracting tennis stars from the World's top ten, coverage will be beamed across the world on BBC.
Defending champion Tamira Paszek has confirmed she will return to defend her title and world No.4 Agnieszka Radwa?ska, the highest ranked player to enter the event so far, will be looking for another successful grass court season having reached the final of The Championships, Wimbledon last year, as will World No.6 Kerber and 2011 champion Marion Bartoli, who will both be returning to the event.
But they will come up against stiff competition with British No.1 Laura Robson already confirmed and former world No.1 Ana Ivanovic and former two-time Grand Slam Champion Svetlana Kuznetsova also lined-up for the tournament held 15-22 June.
The men's draw has 2012 runner up Andreas Seppi attempting to go one better this year and reclaim the title he won in 2011 after going down to Andy Roddick in last year's final. Frenchman and former world No.6 Gilles Simon is the current No.1 seed while Argentinean Juan Monaco and last year's quarter-finalist at Wimbledon, Philipp Kohlschreiber, are also in the draw. Radek Stepanek, Viktor Troicki and 20-year-old Australian Bernard Tomic add further star power to the tournament.
Tournament Director Gavin Fletcher said: "We're delighted to announce a world-class field for the men's and women's tournaments at this year's Aegon International, with 12 of the world's top 20 women having entered the draw. There's a great combination of the world's best players and rising stars and we're expecting a fantastic week of tennis for both the players and the crowds."
Past winners include Andy Roddick, Justine Henin and Lindsay Davenport.
This year's championship is sponsored by pensions and investments company AEGON
