Ipswich tennis star Elena Baltacha will get her Wimbledon campaign underway against Italy's Flavia Pennetta on Monday.

The 29-year-old was handed a wildcard for this year's event and will now face Pennetta in the first round.

Baltacha will be appearing in the singles competition for the 12th time in her career, and goes into the tournament in good form after winning the Aegon Nottingham Challenge last week.
