Maria will be heading to the AEGON Classic in Birmingham to play her first grass event of 2011.
Birmingham will run from June 6-12 2011 at the Edgbaston Priory Club and is an International $220K event.
Maria says: "I'm excited to be playing at the AEGON Classic once again. It's one of my favourite pre-slam tournaments and I can't wait to get back out on the grass courts at the Priory Club."
"I always get such a warm welcome in Birmingham at the event and from the people in the city so I always enjoy going back and I look forward to returning there in June."
Then I will see her play for the first time at Birmingham this year
