The 2013 Birmingham Open is one of three tennis tournaments held in Great Britain that make up the grass court season for the WTA players. Birmingham is one of the 34 WTA International category tournaments in 2013. The official name of Birmingham due to title sponsorship naming rights is the AEGON Classic.
I encourage you to “Follow” the Birmingham WTA Twitter like I do, the official handle is @AEGONClassic and the official hashtag is #AEGONclassic. Please “Like” the official Birmingham WTA Facebook page just as I do by pasting http://www.facebook.com/AegonClassic into your address bar then click “Like” once you are there.
The main draw singles event runs from Monday 10 June through to the Women’s Singles Final day on Sunday 16 June. It is held at the Edgbaston Priory Club in Birmingham, Great Britain on grass courts and this year is the 32nd consecutive staging of this tournament (began in 1982).
The 2012 women’s singles champion was the unseeded Melanie OUDIN who defeated No.5 seed Jelena JANKOVIC in the final 6-4, 6-2 to win her first WTA singles title.
