BARNSTAPLE, GREAT BRITAIN: Next week the ITF Pro Circuit returns to the north-Devon town in the west of England for the fifth year running.

Britain’s Anne Keothavong is also set to be back to defend her 2011 singles title, a feat no previous champion has managed. 2009 champion Johanna Larsson came closest to making a successful title defence when the Swede finished runner-up to Alison Riske in 2010.

If Keothavong, the only former champion in the draw, is to succeed in winning a third title she will have to overcome the challenges of some tough competitors including five fellow WTA Top 100 ranked players (as at the entry deadline date).

Tournament results will be uploaded here daily after close of play each day and if you are lucky enough to be attending this tournament then you can share your photos on our official Facebook page or on Twitter using #ITFprocircuit.
