Week 24 (w/c 10 June): Stuttgart, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Nottingham, Manchester

Grass season is here, with the first of four tour events in Britain.

Stuttgart

ATP 250

Let’s get this one out of the way quickly first as the only British interest here is Luke Bambridge and Jonny O’Mara in doubles.

Defending singles champ Roger Federer is skipping it this time round, so Alexander Zverev is their top seed.

You won’t find this one on TV or Amazon Prime, only Tennis TV which will have 23 singles matches from Monday.


‘s-Hertogenbosch

ATP 250 and WTA International, BT Sport

This combined event takes place in Rosmalen, near to ‘s-Hertogenbosch, or Den Bosch for short, in the Netherlands.

Whatever you want to call it, we have three doubles teams with British interest there this week. Dominic Inglot who won the title last year with Franko Skugor returns this year with Austin Krajicek. Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski are the third seeds; Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram are fourth seeds.

Defending singles champions are Richard Gasquet and Aleksandra Krunic. Both are back with Stefanos Tsitsipas and Kiki Bertens heading up the singles draws.

The Libema Open, to give it its official name, is has coverage of the WTA matches all week on BT Sport, and 13 of the ATP singles matches are on Tennis TV.

Johanna Konta has been runner up twice in Nottingham, to Donna Vekic in 2017 and Ashleigh Barty in 2018.

Nottingham

WTA International, Eurosport

On to home soil now, and in Nottingham we have the Nature Valley Open which has been a combined WTA International and ATP Challenger tournament since 2017.

More on the men below in the Challenger section, but heading up the WTA draw is Caroline Garcia. Last year’s champion Ashleigh Barty and runner-up Johanna Konta both withdrew following their deep runs at Roland-Garros.

For those wanting to back the Brits, do not despair, as Heather Watson, Harriet Dart, Katie Swan, Naiktha Bains and Maia Lumsden are all flying the British flag in Nottingham this week, and Tara Moore came though two qualifying rounds on Sunday to join them in the main draw.

In the doubles draw there were wildcards for Naiktha Bains and Freya Christie, and Sarah Beth Grey and Eden Silva, who had all also played singles qualifying.

The coverage from Nottingham is on Eurosport – not on BT Sport as domestic tournaments are contracted separately from the rest of the tour – but while Birmingham and Eastbourne are broadcast in full, here we don’t get to see any play on television until Thursday.
