Nine-times Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova will play singles at the Hastings Direct International in Eastbourne next week.
The 46-year-old has requested a singles wild card in order to gain extra practice on grass ahead of playing doubles at Wimbledon.
Navratilova made a singles comeback at the same event last year, eight years after retiring following defeat to Conchita Martinez in the Wimbledon final.
The American defeated Russian Tatiana Panova in the first round before bowing out to Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia.
Navratilova and Alicia Molik reached the second round of the doubles in the DFS Classic in Birmingham on Wednedsaday with victory over Nathalie Dechy and Emilie Loit of France.
"I would have played singles here if I could have got here sooner," she said.
"But I had a broken tooth to get fixed in Paris and I couldn't leave until Saturday.
"I'm trying to get in (to Eastbourne) because it makes me play better for the doubles but it would be too much to play singles at Wimbledon.
"I feel I am hitting the ball as well as I was in the 1980s. I've been playing well. I played really well in Berlin and Rome.
"I should not be playing at 46. I'm not playing as well as I was when I was 26 but I'm playing better than I was at 36."
