The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has confirmed that world No.12 Feliciano Lopez will compete in the Aegon Open Nottingham ATP event in June. The Spanish player is the first international player to be announced for the tournament which sees the return of world class grass court tennis to Nottingham.
The participation of Lopez alongside Great Britain’s Davis Cup hero James Ward, highlights the strength of the field that will compete for the title in preparation for the Championships, Wimbledon.
The Aegon Open Nottingham will form part of a new British grass court season that will run for three weeks between the French Open at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The women’s WTA event takes place from 6-14 June 2015, and the men’s ATP event is staged from 20-27 June 2015.
Speaking on his announcement, Feliciano said: “I’m really excited to be playing the Aegon Open Nottingham this summer. Having an extra week in the grass court season is great for the players as we now have more time to play on this unique surface before Wimbledon.
The Nottingham tournament will be very important for me, the British fans always bring a fantastic atmosphere to their tournaments.”
David Macmillan, Chief Marketing Officer at Aegon said: “It is fantastic news that Feliciano Lopez is playing the Aegon Nottingham Open. It will be a highly competitive player field at the tournament and one that will deliver fantastic sporting action.”
