Emma Raducanu will make her first competitive appearance in England since her US Open triumph at Nottingham next week.
The 19-year-old’s second-round exit from the French Open means she will start her grass-court campaign a week earlier than initially intended.
Raducanu and fellow Briton Dan Evans have been given wildcards for the Rothesay Open Nottingham, which gets under way next Monday.
Raducanu said: “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.
“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.”
British number two Evans will join the likes of former top-10 players Jack Sock and Fernando Verdasco, as well British duo Liam Broady and Jay Clarke, in the ATP event.
“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,” said Evans.
“The home fans are always vocal in their backing and hopefully I can give them something to cheer.”
