WILDCARD ENTRIES CONFIRMED

British pair Anne Keothavong and Katie O’Brien have today been confirmed as wildcard entries in the main draw of the Hastings Direct International Championships at Eastbourne.

Both British number one Keothavong and number three O’Brien come to the south coast after featuring in the main draw of the DFS Classic at the Edgbaston Priory Club earlier this week.

Four more British women; Melanie South, Sarah Borwell, Jane O’Donoghue and Georgie Stoop have all been given wildcard entries into the tournament’s qualifying competition which starts tomorrow (Saturday 17th June).

Borwell defeated South in the first round of the DFS Classic whilst O’Donoghue made it to the Wimbledon wildcard play-off final, also this week, at Raynes Park. They will all be looking to produce their best tennis in the build up to The Championships, Wimbledon next week.

Tournament Director Gavin Fletcher said: “We are delighted to welcome six British players to the Hastings Direct International Championships. It is a great opportunity for young developing British players to mix it with the top three players in the world. It will be a fantastic experience for them and I’m sure they will all get fantastic support from the crowd here at Devonshire Park.”
