THE pre-Wimbledon women's grasscourt tournament at Birmingham's Edgbaston Priory Club from 7 to 13 June is to be sponsored by DFS, a division of Northern Upholstery.

THE international federation will donate dollars 50,000 ( pounds 34,700) to the Arthur Ashe Foundation for research into Aids. A posthumous Award for Services to the Game will also be made to the former Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open champion who died last month. It is for his contribution to player development and humanitarian projects and in recognition of his achievements as both a Davis Cup player and successful team captain.
