Former champions, breakthrough stars and daring debutants are hitting the shores of England’s south coast for a shot at the title at the Viking International Eastbourne, an ATP 250 grass-court event.

Held the week before Wimbledon at Devonshire Park, the combined ATP Tour and WTA Tour event will feature 2017 finalist Gael Monfils and two-time former champion Richard Gasquet, who won back to back titles in 2005-06.

Queen’s Club quarter-finalist Cameron Norrie will fly the flag for the hosts, as he seeks to continue his rich vein of form in Eastbourne. Norrie will be aiming to become the first British champion in Eastbourne since Greg Rudeski won his second title here in 2003.

They will be joined by four-time ATP Tour titlist Alex de Minaur, who is seeking his first trophy on grass courts. Aslan Karatsev, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Lorenzo Sonego will also feature as they make their tournament debuts.
