BIRMINGHAM, England - Prior to the start of main draw play at the Aegon Classic, Kristina Mladenovic was on hand for the latest endeavor of WTA Charities, as she helped open up four renovated public tennis courts at Pype Hayes Park on Sunday in Birmingham.

The venue will offer free tennis and coaching for everyone at these courts as an effort to help grow the game of tennis in Birmingham. Mladenovic cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the courts, and assisted with a kids' clinic – which hosted over 100 kids from the local area for the courts' opening.
