Laura Robson took to social media to reveal her delight ahead of making her return to competitive tennis this weekend.

The 21-year-old will play at the Aegon International at Eastbourne after 17 months away from the sport due to a wrist injury.

Robson, who has not played since losing in the first round of the Australian Open in 2014, will enter the qualifying tournament this weekend.

She posted the picture above on her Twitter account on Thursday and wrote: “Tournament bound… Is this real life? #pumped”

Robson will begin her qualifying campaign on Saturday.

“I am looking forward to making my return to the tour and I am excited to compete in front of the great Eastbourne fans again,” Robson said.
