Bristol's Katie Swan will make her WTA tour debut at the Aegon Classic in Birmingham today.

She faces former Wimbledon semi-finalist and world number 47 Tsvetana Pironkova in the first round, having received a wildcard entry to the tournament.

The 16 year-old is one of British tennis' brightest prospects having finished runner-up at the Australian Open girls' tournament in January.

Pironkova and Swan will take to the court at 5pm today - follow @aegonuktennis and @Katieswan99 on Twitter for all the latest.
