David Ferrer will have a little break after the Roland Garros aka 2015 French Open before becoming of of five world top twenty tennis stars to compete in the new ATP World Tour championship even in Nottingham this June. One thing about it, tennis players have their pick of many matches to choose from the way they keep adding them.
The former world number three is a two-time Wimbledon quarter-finalist and reached the 2013 French Open final.
Now ranked eighth in the world, the Spaniard has already won three titles this year and joins compatriot Feliciano Lopez on the entry list.
David Goffin and Frenchmen Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon will also play.
Aljaz Bedene, who gained British citizenship last month, is the second Briton on the list after James Ward announced his participation in March .
The tournament begins on 22 June, the week before Wimbledon.
The former Nottingham Open, a men’s tournament held at the city’s tennis centre, folded in 2008 after 14 years as a warm-up event for the sport’s only Grand Slam to be played on grass.
Meanwhile, it was announced in December that the East Midlands venue will also stage a WTA women’s tournament from 8-14 June.
