The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has confirmed that French superstar Jo-Wilfred Tsonga will compete at the Aegon Open Nottingham ATP event in June. The 2008 Australian Open finalists will no doubt thrill the guest enjoying the excellent hospitality facilities at Nottingham.
Tsonga is one of the most popular figures in the sport and has a fantastic grass court record, having twice made the semi-finals at the Wimbledon Championships. The Frenchman has been ranked as high as number five in the world, and will be a major attraction for the event.
He will face other stars such as Feliciano Lopez and Great Britain’s Davis Cup hero James Ward. The Aegon Open Nottingham will see two tournaments take place in June, the women’s WTA event taking place from 6-14 June 2015, and the men’s ATP event being staged from 20-28 June 2015.
These two events will be an integral part of the new British grass court season, which begins after Roland Garos and will give the world’s best players to prepare for Wimbledon.
