Raducanu will also take part in the Rothesay Classic Birmingham a week later
“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, “The grass court season is always a special time for British players and I can’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.”
Rebecca James, Tournament Director at Rothesay Open Nottingham, said: “We 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 men’s and women’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 I’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.”🇬🇧 Dan Evans 🇬🇧 Emma Raducanu
