Britain's top two players Johanna Konta and Heather Watson will compete at the Aegon International in Eastbourne this summer.

Konta's remarkable rise to 23rd in the world rankings began at Devonshire Park last season, when she beat Ekaterina Makarova and Garbine Muguruza on her way to the quarter-finals.

The 24-year-old, who lives in Eastbourne, said: "Playing at Devonshire Park is really special for me and I can't wait to get back on the courts, just a stone's throw from my family home.

"Returning to my home town is so much fun and I get such a warm welcome. It's an amazing player field this year and I'm sure the fans will enjoy loads of world-class tennis."

Watson also has pedigree at the tournament, which runs from June 18 to 25, having reached the semi-finals in 2014.
