Jo Konta will be Britain's best hope in the women's draw at Wimbledon this year

This year’s Nottingham Open has acted as the perfect warm-up for some of tennis’ biggest names ahead of the start of Wimbledon on June 28.

The event at the Nottingham Tennis Centre was split into two tournaments played in consecutive weeks as players were given the maximum amount of grass-court practice.

Below are some of the women who featured in Nottingham and will also be competing at the All England Club.

Johanna Konta

Konta won the Nottingham Open title with a straight-sets victory in the final over Zhang Shuai.

The Brit reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2017 and is seen as Britain’s best hope of going far again this year.

If Konta were to reach the final at the All England Club this year she would become the first to do so since Virginia Wade won the title in 1977.

Heather Watson

The Guernsey-born Brit lost to Katie Boulter in the last 16 in Nottingham and was narrowly beaten by former French Open champion, Iga Swiatek, in a close-fought battle in Eastbourne.

Watson famously pushed Serena Williams to the limit in the third round of Wimbledon in 2015 before losing in three sets.

And despite having failed to reach those heights since, the world No 65 could use the home crowd at SW19 to her advantage.

Donna Vekic

Vekic won the Nottingham Open in 2017, beating Konta in three sets.

But the Croat could not repeat that same success this year as she was beaten by Nina Stojanović in the third round.

The 24-year-old reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2017 where she lost to Jo Konta in a three-hour battle.

Alison Riske

The American was the number two seed in Nottingham this year but lost in the third round to Lauren Davis.

She has won two titles previously on the WTA tour and reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2019 where she lost to Serena Williams.

Kristina Mladenovic

Ranked world number one in the doubles, Mladenovic is unlikely to go far in the singles draw but could reach the latter stages of Wimbledon with her partner Markéta Vondroušová.

The Frenchwoman lost in the quarter-finals of Nottingham to the eventual runner-up, Zhang Shuai, so may still surprise a few at SW19 this year.
