“I’m excited to return to Nottingham and it will be a great opportunity to play in front of British crowds for the first time this year,” said the US Open champion.

“This event will always be special to me as I played my first tournament on the WTA Tour here last June and I can’t wait to go back.”

Dan Evans has also accepted a wildcard for Nottingham, playing in the ATP Challenger tournament that includes fellow Brits Liam Broady and Jay Clarke.

The British number 1 said, โ€œThe grass court season is always a special time for British players and I canโ€™t wait to get back to Nottingham and play on courts that are always in such good condition. The home fans are always vocal in their backing and hopefully I can give them something to cheer.โ€

Rebecca James, Tournament Director at Rothesay Open Nottingham, said: โ€œWe are delighted to be welcoming Emma and Dan back to Nottingham. We already have some impressive players entered to play in the Rothesay Open Nottingham in both the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s draw, so tennis fans can look forward to a fantastic week of action.

“Emma started her WTA journey here just 12 months ago and Dan is a former champion and Iโ€™m sure fans will be delighted to see them both play on the wonderful grass courts at Nottingham Tennis Centre. We are all very much looking forward to a special grass court season.โ€
