Leading up to the third Grand Slam tournament of the season, and the only one played on the grass courts, the 2023 Eastbourne International, which is held from June 26th to July 1st, serves as a great preparation for players who still want to work on their game on the surface that they have such a short period of time to play on.
One of the players that seems to like the tournament is Taylor Fritz. The American, who recently shared his views on tennis attracting a younger audience, won the tournament twice and he's the defending champion also in 2023.
Fritz confirmed his participation in this year's event in an attempt to add another trophy to his 2019 and 2022 triumphs. But a few more Americans join him on the entry list as he contested also the last year's final against Maxime Cressy.
The tall American will defend his final in 2023 too, joined by Tommy Paul, Brandon Nakashima, and J.J. Wolf. Both semifinalist from the 2022 tournament will also travel to Eastbourne as both Jack Draper and Alex de Minaur are set to participate.
But the list of the names that can go far at the event doesn't end there. Francisco Cerundolo, Grigor Dimitrov, and Botic van de Zandschulp are all capable of doing damage, and they will want to show that ahead of the Wimbledon.
One of the players on the entry list, Mikael Ymer, will need to work hard to recover a $40,000 fine that he recently received for smashing the umpire's chair, and the tournament in Eastbourne will give him a chance to do that as he made the cut.
