Emma Raducanu will be back in action at the 2024 Nottingham Open, getting her grass season underway on home soil. The Briton will view the tournament with importance as it is her first in gearing up for the Wimbledon Championships, slated to be held at the beginning of July.

Pitted against a doubles Grand Slam champion in the form of Ena Shibahara, Raducanu will need to find her stride quickly as she plays her first match in over six weeks.

The Briton had arrived in Nottingham early and had been spotted hitting the practice courts in the lead-up to the tournament. Shibahara, meanwhile, has had her own time on court during the qualification rounds — which she successfully navigated.

With an exciting clash in the offing, here’s all you need to know about the encounter.

Raducanu will lock horns with qualifier Ena Shibahara in her opening-round encounter at the 2024 Nottingham Open.

The Briton, who skipped the French Open after failing to secure a direct entry into the main draw, has not played any matches since April when she exited the Madrid Open in the first round.

Shibahara, meanwhile, qualified for her first singles main draw of the season. She posted back-to-back upset wins in qualification rounds, ousting 11th seed Madison Inglis and second seed Alex Eala in two tough matches.

The two have never played each other before as Shibahara, although a regular presence on the Tour in recent years, focuses largely on playing doubles.
