EASTBOURNE WILD CARDS

Mel South and Katie O’Brien have been awarded wildcards for the main draw at the International Women’s Open which is taking place at Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park between 14th-21st June (Box office: 01323 412 000).

Mel South is currently No 154 in the world rankings and has already picked up a $25k title this year in Sorrento, Australia. On Thursday, the 22 year-old became the first Brit since Jo Durie in 1992 to reach the quarter-final at the DFS Classic, a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Tier III event, in Edgbaston. In 2007, the National Tennis Centre based right-hander reached the last 16 in Eastbourne where she lost against the Wimbledon runner-up, Marion Bartoli.

Nigel Sears, Head Women’s Coach at the LTA, said: “I’m delighted that Mel and Katie have been awarded the opportunity to do well in front of a home crowd at Devonshire Park. Both players are in great form having won matches at this week’s DFS Classic event in Edgbaston.
