Caroline Wozniacki is returning to Eastbourne again this summer to defend her title.

The Danish former world No.1 has confirmed her entry for the Nature Valley International at Devonshire Park in June.

Eastbourne specialist Wozniacki, currently ranked 12 in the world, has won the title twice, been runner-up three times and reached the semi-finals three times.

She beat Aryna Sabalenka in the 2018 final, nine years after she first won the Sussex showpiece.

Wozniacki said: "Eastbourne holds a special place in my heart, and it's nice to see so many loyal fans and families coming to the event year after year who make all the players feel so welcome.

"There are some great things you can do in and around the event, and there aren't many tournaments where we get to interact so closely with the fans. That creates a unique atmosphere that makes Eastbourne a really special place for us to play."

The Argus: Wozniacki joins Johanna Konta (above), the British No.1 from Eastbourne, who has committed to play all three of the LTA's summer grass court tournaments.

Centre and No.1 courts were sold out on six of the seven main draw days last year, when the attendance reached a record of 51,641.
