The Nottingham tennis tournament is the last grass warm up event before Wimbledon, following on from Surbiton and the Stella Artois events (and also Halle in Germany).
Here are some quotes from the Nottingham tennis tournament:
"Heís a great player - it's only second time Iíve beaten him, and heís still one of the best returners in the game."

"Itís great preparation for Wimbledon. You canít beat it."
Greg Rusedski, on how useful Nottingham grass court tennis event is as a warm up for the main event at Wimbledon.
"I like the courts here where there is a lot of bounce - I've been fortunate to win in straight sets."
