Wozniacki confirms Devonshire Park return

Former world number one and 2009 AEGON International champion Caroline Wozniacki is set for a return to Eastbourne after confirming her entry into next month’s tournament at Devonshire Park.

Wozniacki was victorious in the tournament three years ago when she defeated France’s Virginie Razzano 7-6(5), 7-5.

The Danish star, who is currently ranked at No.6 in the world rankings, is one of a host of top ranked players from the women’s WTA Tour to accept a place in the tournament, which will take place from 16-23 June.

Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, reigning AEGON International champion Marion Bartoli and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic have also announced their participation.

Polish world No.3 Agnieszka Radwanska and world No.10 Vera Zvonareva from Russia are the other headline players in a world class field in Eastbourne.

In the men’s draw, France’s Richard Gasquet is the highest ranked player in the draw while Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, who confirmed his entry last month, and Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber will also be in action.

Australian teenager Bernard Tomic, who reached the quarter-finals at The Championships, Wimbledon, last year has also signed up for the week-long tournament.
