Teenage sensation Tatiana Golovin will return to the grass courts this year to take part in the DFS Classic.

Teenage sensation Tatiana Golovin will return to the grass courts this year in Birmingham (11-17th June) to take part in the DFS Classic. The French star is currently ranked 17 in the world and will take her place in the draw alongside world number four Jelena Jankovic at one of the most prestigious grasscourt tournaments in the world.

Tatiana exploded onto the WTA Tour in 2004 reaching the fourth round at the Australian Open and Wimbledon as well as her first Tour final at the DFS Classic and ended the year inside the top 30. 2005 was a similar success story finishing runner up in Tokyo and breaking into the top 20 although a run of injuries prevented the Frenchwoman from adding to her achievements.

2007 has been another great year for the 19 year old, re-establishing herself firmly within the world’s top 20. She won her first ever Tour title in April at the Amelia Island event beating Nadia Petrova in the final. She has also reached quarter finals in Charleston and Indian Wells and the semi final in Antwerp. In April her two victories over the Japanese team helped France through to the semi finals of the Fed Cup.

Tatiana Golovin said: “I’m really looking forward to playing in Birmingham this year. I’ve got some great memories from the event and will hopefully go one better than 2004 when I reached the final.”

DFS Classic Tournament Director Marjorie Howie said: “Tatiana has always been a huge crowd favorite when she has played at the DFS Classic and has an enviable track record in the tournament. It is fantastic to be able to announce that another top player will be joining a world class field in Birmingham this year.”

The DFS Classic will be played at the Edgbaston Priory Club, June 9-17th 2007 with tickets currently on sale via the Box Office on 0870 909 3015. This year’s qualifying event will run between Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June 2007 with the main draw played between 11 and 17 June.
