On day 2 of qualifying, it was time for all the big names to fit in their practice, giving Birmingham tennis fans plenty of opportunities for selfies and autographs.
It was Edgbaston Priory Club’s courts that turned out to be the stars with tennis legend, Venus Williams, describing them as quity simply gorgeous!
The work of our grounds team haven’t gone unnoticed as they have defied the rain to deliver outstanding courts for the players.
