Eastbourne tennis ace Johanna Konta will face stiff competition in her home tournament, the Aegon International, this summer.

Fellow top ten players Dominika Cibulkova, Agnieszka Radwanska and Karolina Pliskova have all entered the Devonshire Park showpiece from June 25 to July 1.

Cibulkova is the defending champion. Radwanska, a former Wimbledon finalist, won the tournament in 2008 and last year's runner-up Pliskova is ranked three in the world after a flying start to the year.

Cibulkova, ranked four, an eight-time winner on the WTA Tour, said: "I'm really looking forward to defending my title. Winning in 2016 was a special moment for me, my first title on grass.

"It's a tournament with great tradition and there are some great names entered. The fans will have fun I'm sure."

This year's event marks the return of men's tennis alongside the women for the first time since 2014. Tickets are on sale at an 'early bird' rate until May 4.
