[1] Johanna Konta

Bring on the grass! Although the clay court season may not have brought too many wins, British No. 1 and current World No. 8 returns to home soil for what looks like a very busy summer indeed. She kicks off her grass court season in Nottingham as the top seed, and a surface that plays well into her style.

The only tiny little (grass) seed of doubt is whether such a full lead up will affect her chances of advancing past the second round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career

Sevatsova’s comeback to the tour and her cracking the Top 20 for the first time in her career was the pinnacle of her clay court season, but the grass is another beast altogether for the Latvian. She had no joy in Nottingham last year, exiting in her opener, but the sun of Mallorca was a lot kinder to her, where she reached the final, before exiting in the first round of Wimbledon. Fair to say maybe the grass is not her best surface.

Another player who probably will put this four week period down to just something that has to be done. Her results on grass have been nothing to write home about, and we might expect the third seed to be an early casualty.


[4] Alison Riske

Last year’s finalist returns to see if she can mount an ultimately more successful grass court campaign. She won the Eastbourne $50K, and reached the Nottingham final but things tailed off for her after that, falling in the first round of Eastbourne qualies and the first round of Wimbledon.

The Aegon Open takes place between 12-18 June.
