World No 3 Simona Halep to play at Aegon Classic Birmingham

We are pleased to announce that World No 3.  Simona Halep will play at this year’s Aegon Classic Birmingham at Edgbaston Priory Club.

Halep, a recent winner in Indian Wells and semi-finalist at the Miami Open, is heading to the Edgbaston Priory Club to join defending champion Ana Ivanovic.

The Romanian star reached the final of the French Open and the last four at Wimbledon during a successful 2014 and is looking to add to her already fine results on the surface.

Halep said: “This is my first time playing at the Aegon Classic Birmingham. I’m really excited about the tournament and I’m looking forward to getting some great support.
“It means a lot to me to be playing in a tournament which has so many big champions in its history. I really enjoy playing on grass.

“It’s a fast surface that suits my game style. I had a fantastic grass court season last year and hope to have more successes in 2015.”

Tournament Director, Patrick Hughesman, said: “We are delighted. She is a rising star of the sport and is one of the best players in the world. Simona joins an already impressive player field including our defending champion Ana Ivanovic, and we look forward to announcing more players soon.”
