2024 Nottingham Open WTA Entry List - Jabeur, Krejcikova, Boulter & More

by Nurein Ahmed

The 2024 Nottingham Open is the first WTA grass court tournament of the season in the UK and will run from June 10th to 16th.

This tournament is part of the WTA 250 series and serves as a tuneup for Wimbledon. It will be played at the Nottingham Tennis Centre. British players have won two of the last three editions.

Some former World No. 1s who have won this tournament in the past include the legendary Billie Jean King, Ashleigh Barty - both double champions - and Karolina Pliskova.

Last year, Katie Boulter won a maiden title after beating Jodie Burrage in the all-British final, a first on the WTA tour level in 46 years. Boulter will return to Nottingham to defend her crown as the fourth seed.

However, 24-year-old Burrage will likely miss out because she isn't featured on the initial entry list as she recovers from wrist surgery. She has been training on grass recently, suggesting she might play another tournament ahead of Wimbledon.

The top seed at the event will be Ons Jabeur, the lone Top 10 player in the 32-player singles field. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Barbora Krejcikova will also join her in a strong-looking lineup.

French players Diane Parry and Clara Burel feature, while former World No. 1 and 2016 champion Karolina Plisokova will kick-start her Wimbledon preparations at this event.

Aside from Krejcikova, another Grand Slam singles champion in the field is Sofia Kenin, who has struggled to find consistency in her results this year. She went 6-3 on the surface last year. Caroline Dolehide and Ashlyn Krueger are the other two Americans on the entry list.

Tatjana Maria, Lesia Tsurenko, and Viktorija Golubic are the veterans in the lineup. Maria is a former Wimbledon semifinalist and will be chasing her second career title on grass (she won the 2017 Mallorca Open). The entry list for the 2024 Nottingham Open can be seen below.
